What gives you the most pride in the work that you do?
I take pride in seeing and hearing clients have an amazing Y7 yoga experience. Knowing that a 60 minute class can change someones day or week is very rewarding.
What’s your grooming routine?
I like to get my haircut every 3-4 weeks. I usually always go to a barber shop. I take care of my beard myself, usually every few days and never shave completely clean. I like to keep a beard.
How would you describe your style and why do you choose that look?
Currently my style is very fitness driven. If I am at the office or at the studios I am usually in some arrangement of fitness pants, joggers, t-shirts and hats. I rarely get formally dressed up these days.
What and who inspires you?
I am inspired by many entrepreneurs and leaders that bring their visions to reality. Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, Mark Cuban, Warren Buffet and so many others. I’m also inspired by my mom who was an entrepreneur and raised me with solid values.
What advice do you have for people who want to achieve success?
Stay super focused on doing one thing really well. Don’t try to do a hundred things well at once.
