Describe yourself in three words.         

I would describe myself as social, creative, and loyal.

What are your top three favorite songs at the moment?

Territory by The Blaze, Chanel by Frank Ocean, and Call Me Over by Noah Clark.

If you could be any fictional character, who would you be?

I would be Brad Pitt in Fight Club. He just seems so careless and having so much fun.

Who inspires you? Why? 

I find inspiration in everything here in New York. I don’t think I could pick just one person because it could really be anyone. It could be anyone on the street or anyone sitting at a café. I am lucky to have a lot of great friends who are very creative. Just being around them and discussing projects and creativity is really important. It inspires me.

Where is your favorite place in the world and why?

I really like Ibiza, but the side that is not the party side. It's a very beautiful place. The weather is always good. You can find small hidden beaches and caves to explore.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?

Christian Bale. I love him, I’ve always been a fan of his. 

If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?

Probably a steak.

If you were a singer, what would the name of your debut album be?

Young Hangry. It’s funny because I was just talking about this with my friends in LA. They started calling me Young Hangry because I usually eat a lot and when I haven’t had food for awhile, I can get a little angry. It's the perfect album name.

What are your three biggest fears?

Dying from something unexpectedly, airplane crash, or getting run down by a car.

I gave you $100,000 to start a business, what would you start?

Some of my good friends back home are in the restaurant business. I wouldn’t want that to be the main thing in my life, but I’ve always dreamt of being able to open a restaurant as a side thing.

If you were a car, what type would you be?

A big Mercedes Benz. I feel like it is an elegant, yet powerful car. It’s also minimalistic in a way.

Would you rather fight 1 horse-sized duck, or 100 duck-sized horses?

I would rather fight duck sized horses. It seems easier to me.
