📱 Device of choice? iPhone

⏰ First tap of the day: "The alarm clock. I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a morning person."

👋 Favorite app: FaceTime. "Having to be away from my wife Chrissy and our four children while I’m in Washington isn’t easy, and FaceTime allows me to be as close as I can in the big moments and the small."

🗞 Go-to news source: "The Wall Street Journal – the kind you can actually hold in your hands. Call me a 'boomer,' but there’s nothing like a good old-fashioned paper with your morning coffee."

🎧 Favorite podcast: "The Pacific Century" from the Hoover Institution.

📚 Reading list: " 'Tokyo Junkie' written by a friend of mine, Bob Whiting, about one of the most interesting cities in the world."
