Describe what you were like at age 10.
My friends and I were always trying to figure out different ways to make money. The best one was a casino in my apartment complex. We had a toy roulette table, some dice, and cards. We made a lot of money until the apartment manager shut us down and told our parents. Our parents were more impressed than angry though.
If you were an animal what would it be?
I would probably be a komodo dragon because they are super awesome apex predators who have their own island. Or an owl. They’re cool too.
What’s the best part of your day?
When I walk in the door at home and see my daughter smiling at me.
What inspires you?
People who get things done despite adversity.
How do you describe success?
Being satisfied with the here and now. I am all about self improvement and being a better version of you, but I think that you have to be happy with what you have in this moment instead of always hoping the next moment is going to make you happy.
