What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
In life, people are afraid of change. Don’t be afraid to take on new challenges and get out of your comfort zone.
Who inspires you and why?
Tom Brady and his mantra of “no days off”. It’s admirable that he has five Superbowl Championships under his belt and remains an all-American guy.
Do you have any irrational fears, which one(s)?
Thanks to my brother torturing me as a child, my irrational fear is frogs.
