Do you have a favorite anecdote associated with being on the show?
Celebrity sightings when I was in town for taping: Rodney Dangerfield and Mr. Rogers at the hotel and Ben Stein (back when he was just the “Bueller…Bueller?” guy) at the Hard Rock Café

Did being on Jeopardy! have any effect on your life?
I figure my 15 minutes went the way of most Teen Tourney winners--local celebrity, fan mail (some interesting, some frightening), and a bunch of people saying “Wait! You were the guy on Jeopardy!” during my first couple of months in college. One pretty unique result was a fairly embarrassing appearance on The Jon Stewart Show back when he was on MTV.

Did you do anything crazy with your winnings?
Hmm. I think the check was made payable to the Office of the Bursar at Princeton, so I guess the answer is no.
