In His Own Words
What do you do? (in 5 words or fewer)
Navigate, diplomatize, support, structure, adapt.
What's the weirdest job you've ever had (before free range)?
Graveyard groundskeeper. I weed-whacked for 40 hours per week for two summers during high school/college. I would start at the front of the lot on Monday morning and by the time I reached the back it’d be Friday afternoon. Then I’d start all over.
What are you most proud of?
Staying dedicated to a year-long workout regimen for my race across Jordan. I trained 6 days a week and was on a crazy, super high-calorie diet for what seemed to be forever. It’s amazing what the human body can accomplish when you stick to your goals.
Who is your hero?
My dad. He was always an active guy and taught me how to recognize and take advantage of the important things in life.
What’s your favorite board game, and why?
Hungry Hungry Hippos. I think I had a lot of energy as a kid and hitting the marble-eating-chomper-lever was pure catharsis.
What would you be willing to die for?
I’d take a bullet for my family. Or maybe be ok with dying due to some epic extreme sport failure, like if I was BASE jumping and my wingsuit got caught on a branch jutting out from cliff and I spiraled down into a deep, black canyon of nothingness (what, you guys don’t think about these things?).
