Which actor would play you in a movie?

Not sure who’d play me, I’d probably be portrayed like Chewbacca in Star Wars.

Most used emoji?

The peace sign.

Who’s your biggest inspiration and why?

Not someone, but a story I once heard. This story is about Jim Carrey and how he went from no real work to who he is today. He wrote on a cheque “10 million dollars” and kept it in his wallet, working towards that target, until he got paid that amount a few years later for making the movie Dumb and Dumber. That’s always showed me to set goals and aim for them.

Describe your game day routine:

Always have pasta for lunch and listen to music on the trip to the game. It’s a pretty simple routine becuase I don’t have any pre-game superstitions.
