What’s your favorite food to splurge with?

What’s your favorite season?
Summer. I can go to the beach, tan and be half-naked.

What kind of animal would you be?
A dog, because they have life made with their owners. They’re fed, they’re watered and they sleep a lot.

What kind of plant would you be?
A rose, because they’re super beautiful, yet they have thorns. I tend to protect myself.

What kind of car would you be?
A Tesla, because they’re super sporty and very simple on the inside. I’m a very simple guy.

What are you most grateful for?
The friends and family in my life.

What’s something you want more of?
More time to spend outside of work.

State your life philosophy in 10 words or less.
Never give up. You can always get what you want.
