Where are you from?
I’m a Colorado native, I haven’t left because it’s a pretty awesome place with limitless activities.
What do you like to read?
It’s a little corny but I like “Self-Help” books. One of my personal favorites is “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. I like these books because they either teach me something new or reminds me to practice the things I already knew.
What’s your favorite drink?
Whiskey, shaken, stirred, neat… whiskey.
What’s the first career you dreamed of having as a kid?
When I was a kid, I always dreamed of being a fireman. I thought it would cool to be able ride around in a big truck and put out fires around town. I still have the desire to become one, or at least a volunteer firefighter, that way I can still do those things in addition to help others.
Who do you look up to/your biggest influencers?
I look up to my immediate family. They raised me with the idea that I should always be hungry. Whether that be with my career, knowledge, or anything else, always strive to be a better person. I may have also taken that idea too literally since I love food!
