I had to audition with a monologue, which I picked from Death of a Salesman.

To celebrate I ran across the street to Starbucks for a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino and called my mom. She could hear the excitement in my voice and congratulated me on booking the job. Now all I have to do is find an apartment close enough to work so I can walk or bike there everyday.

3) How did he get his PhD?
Sarkov became fascinated with science as a child, despite his parents’ lack of interest in it. He went to college and studied astrophysics, but eventually decided he wanted more than that – he wanted to be hands-on and make things happen, not just study them in textbooks. So after completing his PhD, he took a job at the Experimental Physics Lab at CERN in Switzerland (the European Organization for Nuclear Research). There, he worked on the ATLAS project (a particle physics experiment), where he was responsible for building one of the detectors used by the lab.
