What was your first job, and how did it shape your life?

At about age 14 or 15, I worked at an Asian food distributor’s warehouse and was responsible for helping create an photo catalogue Online. In theory it wasn’t terribly difficult but to take the time to photograph and then Photoshop thousands of items was extremely tedious so it taught me patience and organization.


When do you feel most free?

I am definitely the most free when I am working out in the gym. It’s the one place where you can really push yourself physically and mentally and I don’t fear failure.
 

What was the last present you received?

For Christmas, I received an Apple Watch. It’s not something I can live without, but it is a pretty fun and functional watch. It’s amazing how they can put all that technology into something so small!


What is your view on money?

You should never pay a single dollar in credit card interest or late fees. If you can’t pay for it in full, you can’t afford it.


What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

People view me as bold and daring but it’s only because that’s what I want them to think.
