What are you most excited about when you get up in the morning?
My morning run! I used to hate running, but I’ve grown to love it! Helps me clear my head and get my blood flowing, my day never feels right without a nice morning run!
What’s something that people wouldn’t know about you upon first glance?
Up until the end of high school, I actually aspired to be a professional athlete! It’s something people don’t usually expect because I don’t look the part haha!
What’s your spirit animal?
My spirit animal is none-other than the butterfly! They start off as a caterpillar, and they need to struggle to overcome their cocoon in order to successfully become a butterfly! I really buy into that whole “no pain, no gain” mantra!
Who inspires you to be a better person?
The people around me and my dog! My family inspires me to do well so I can help them retire, and my dog.. well.. I always aspire to be the hooman my dog thinks I already am!
If you had an unexpected day off, what would you do?
I’d go explore somewhere! I’m usually good at making time to explore whenever I get a chance to travel, but I actually haven’t done too much of that in LA where I actually live!
