Who is your favorite superhero, hero, character, or person and why?
Goku is my favourite superhero from Dragon Ball Z. He’s the most powerful character I’ve ever been able to connect with who always does the right thing regardless of what or who he must face. He comes from a place of love and patience, and gets infinite power because of this pureness and enlightenment.

Spending time with my family is very important to me. Living a balanced life and enjoying every moment I can with my wife and children and our two bulldogs.

What makes you extraordinary?
I have a very calculative mind and am able to deduct problems very quickly and find solutions. That’s one of my “super powers” – and positivity above all things.
