Q: What is one thing people don’t know about you?

A: I’m pretty open, I think. Most things I like people know about me. 


Q: What is your wakeup ritual?

A: I don’t have one. I try to wake up before seven [a.m.].


Q: What is your go-to-bed ritual?

A: Turn on the TV and either watch it until I fall asleep or turn it off when I get sleepy. I don’t like being sleepy while watching it.


Q: What is your favorite time of day?

A: Night time because I just hate waking up and I like laying in bed and watching TV. 


Q: If you could switch lives with someone for a day who would it be?

A: It would be pretty cool to live as a viking. I’ve always wanted to be a viking or a pirate. I like Jack Sparrow a lot, he’s pretty awesome. He has pretty cool adventures and I take inspiration from him. 


Q: What is your dream country to visit?

A: Japan. I really like anime and stuff like that. I’ve always wanted to visit Okinawa and the islands down there. 


Q: What is the biggest surprise you’ve had?

A: One time for spring break we were planning on going to Chicago and then a waterpark. We’d been planning [the Chicago trip] for a couple months, and then when we were going to leave,  [my mom] gave us these little gift bags and it turned out we were going to Disney. That was awesome. 


Q: If your life was a TV show, what song would be in the intro?

A: It might just be the intro to the Scooby-Doo show cause that song is heat and I really like Scooby-Doo.


Q: What are three things you can’t live without?

A: Definitely my phone, I have over seven and a half hours of screen time a day. Probably my TV and also friends and family.


Q: What three people living or dead would you like to make dinner for?

A: I’ve always wanted to meet some famous people. I think it’d be pretty cool to meet Ryan Reynolds. I don’t think he’d like my dinner but he’s a pretty chill guy. Don Glover, I’d like to meet him. He’s pretty cool. And Charlie Chaplin, he’s pretty cool and he’s a dancer.


Q: Window seat or aisle seat?

A:  Window, 100%.


Q: Do you have a secret talent?

A: I can thread the needle. The thing where you jump through your leg. That’s my go-to dance move. 


Q: What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve done in your life?

A: Hikes. Hikes are pretty cool; I guess they’re adventurous. 


Q: How would you describe yourself in three words?

A: Outgoing, funny, dedicated 


Q: What is inspiring you in life right now?

A: Dream’s face reveal. He could’ve done a face reveal at five mil like everyone else but no. He waited until he was at the top of his game. It was also just a straight capital money move. 


Q: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

A: Do whatever makes you happy. What makes you happy is different than what makes other people happy and you don’t have to worry about them. If quitting a sport is what makes you happy then so be it, you don’t have to prove anything to anyone. 


Q: What would you like to be remembered for?

A: It’s pretty hard to be remembered as anything more than a good family member or a dad or something. So just being like a nice, kind person.

A: “Young Dumb & Broke” by Khalid.


Q: On a scale of 1-10, how excited are you about life right now?

A: Life everyday makes me feel happy, so I’d say a 12/10.
