Square CEO and Twitter cofounder Jack Dorsey is already an incredibly successful entrepreneur and businessman. But he has more ambitions — including that he wants to be mayor of New York City one day.

“What I love about New York is the electricity I feel right away … there’s people everywhere … it’s chaos,” Dorsey said in a 60 Minutes interview last night. “It’s kind of like being caught in a car during a thunderstorm. So New York feels very much to me like that.”

On the segment, Dorsey also admitted a few other interesting tidbits about his life, including that he does not have a desk (he just carries an iPad around with him) and that he had a speech impediment when he was growing up.
