As a kid, Andrew McKenzie had an unusual affinity for languages.
He took French in high school (because everyone else was taking Spanish). But that wasn't enough.
"I started to teach myself different languages, like Latin and Greek and Basque and Turkish," he remembers. "I would drive into the city to a bookstore, and they’d have a section with language books. I'd say, 'I'm just going to learn this language because the book has the prettiest font.'"
