Name three songs on your training/working out playlist?
I don't listen to music when I train or workout. The silence makes it harder to concentrate, which is a form of mental training in my opinion
Proudest moment in your life so far:
Every moment with my daughter, Taylor, and marrying my wife, Sarah. They are 2 of the 3 most important women in my life. My other is obviously my mother.
