What are you passionate about?
I love meeting people from all walks of life, learning about their backgrounds, and discussing what drives them. Everyone has a unique story and more often than not, there is something for me to take away and apply to my own life.
What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
Back in 2018, I completed a full Tough Mudder in Sacramento. The running part wasn’t too bad, but my team was insistent on finishing each challenge. Lowlights were feeling claustrophobic in the Arctic Enema and passing out briefly after getting shocked in the head during Electroshock Therapy.
What sports star would you most like to meet?
I realize this might not be popular in the Bay Area, but my favorite athlete is LeBron James. His dedication to cultivating a positive image for athletes off the court has been very admirable.
What are your favorite books/movies?
I was a huge Lord of the Rings fan growing up. One of the first movies I ever saw was The Return of the King, and I refuse to acknowledge the Hobbit Trilogy.
Which three words would you use to describe yourself?
Curious, Adaptable, Efficient
