What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
I finished a grueling 14-hour Special Forces endurance training called a GoRuck “Tough” here in San Francisco. It was a team event where you wore backpacks (rucks) with 25 pound bricks inside and got beat up by a Special Forces Cadre starting at 9 PM, ending the next morning. Safe to say, I loved it.
What sports star would you most like to meet?
Serena Williams. She is a powerhouse on and off the court, never settling for anything less than greatness.

Books: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (all 4!), All the Light We Cannot See, The Hobbit
Movies: The Bourne Trilogy, Wedding Crashers, Out Cold, The Quiet Man
Who would you trade places with for one month?

Which band would you love to tour with?
If I could build a time machine and hop in…The Grateful Dead.
What is the one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
