This episode is a bit different than my usual content. My friend, and former crossfit luminary, Sevan Matossian came on to interview me! We talk about my life, and many of the formative experiences that shaped who I am today. No punches were pulled in this episode and I spoke as authentically as possible about challenges, failure, and a few things I am proud of. I also talk about relationships, why I am still single, if I ever want kids, what I am doing in Costa Rica and other random but personal topics.
I hope you enjoy this “opening of the kimono” (as Tim Ferriss might say). Thanks to Sevan for interviewing me, I certainly enjoyed getting the chance to tell some of my story. Love you all.
