Famous people I’ve seen in real life

In no particular order. Including those I saw from afar (e.g. during political rallies, lectures, games or concerts).

Natalie Portman

Drew Barrymore

John Lithgow

Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray)

Bill Gates

Kofi Annan

Thomas Friedman

Yoko Ono

Mitt Romney

Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson
