The way I like to describe it is something geeky, cheesy and cool. When I was a kid, my dream job was to be an astronaut, but I was a kind of 'bubble child' with tons of allergies and health problems, which automatically took me out of the race. When I got to Princeton, I just decided to get started and take the science of rockets. This class has kind of set the stage for the rest of my career. I think it's an innate curiosity that we all have when you look at the sky wondering what's out there, how do I get there, and if I got there, what does it smell, taste, envy? I changed gears and I went to the news because I like that immediate satisfaction. I worked for NY1, and it was both the best and worst job in the world. All of a sudden, you're a lonely man and you're in the South Bronx at a murder scene at 1am. I had a baseball cap uniform, cargo pants and a backpack \u2014 and I always wore my hair in a ponytail. It wasn't a glamorous job. Eventually, I applied for a production assistant position at Bloomberg, and my interviewer told me that I would never get a job there because I had no business experience and there were thousands of people looking for a job there. I was thinking, "You know what, I think I have a lot to offer this company. You're just not the right person to talk to, and before I left the building, I found the right person. So I went to him and I thought, 'You don't know me, but you're going to hire me, and I'm going to follow this up with an e-mail,' and he said, 'Uh, what? Who are you? It took even more perseverance, but this guy hired me and it was my mentor who finally brought me to CNN. I can travel the world and meet the people who change it. It's great and I love it. SKIN CARE I've always had to be very careful with products and stuff because I'm allergic to a lot of ingredients, but that doesn't really stop me from experimenting with products and makeup. One of my favorite things to do is a face mask. I take them on the road, because when you travel a lot, it's one of the best ways to cool off and feel at home. You can be in a Motel 6 but put on a face mask and feel like you've taken a trip to the spa. I love Kiehl's Rare Earth deep pore cleanser mask when my pores are big and the Eminence Clear Skin probiotic mask \u2014 it smells like you're putting yogurt on your face or tzatziki, and it makes you want to eat it! This one is also quite firming. I also use one from my facialist Christine Chin - her Soothing Moisturizing Mask is really refreshing. I usually wash my face with Revision Brightening Facial Wash and my Clarisonic. I don't travel with my Clarisonic, so when I'm on the road and have to remove my makeup for the camera at the end of the day, I use Kiehl's rare Earth Deep Pore daily cleanser. I also like to overlay my serums - I was told it was OK, so now I use the daily Joanna Vargas Skincare serum after the 15% Obagi Professional-C serum. I also really like this concentrated Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control. It makes your skin shine immediately - as you just received a microdermabrasion facial - but if I use it too much, it clogs my pores, so I use it sparingly.
