Q: As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: This might sound strange, but as a young kid I didn’t really have any idea. I really liked outdoorsy stuff like hiking and catching frogs and turtles. I probably wanted to be a Beast-man of sorts.
Q: What do you think is the most important quality you need to have for success?

A: I value being able to speak my mind.
Q: What is your most treasured possession?
A: My Gibson Les Paul Classic (guitar)
Q: What is your favorite kind of technology at the moment?
