My Life in 8 Words

A. Efficiency, confidence, and relentless optimism
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Founding ARCA, an international non-profit organization that studies and combats art crime
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Wandering through Rome, alternating visits to favorite masterpieces in Roman churches with visits to favorite caffes, in a sort of "cappuccino and Caravaggio crawl." I take a perhaps unholy degree of pleasure in visiting churches to look at the art inside, and the only thing that could be better than that is eating great food and drinking great coffee between visits.
