What was your first job, and how did it shape your life?
My first career was as an elite gymnast as part of the US national team. I competed for 10 years, was on the national team for 7, and crowned US National Champion for 4. I am appreciative of the grueling work that goes into chasing a dream, and view starting a company in the same light as I view training for a competitive sport: endless hours of effort in exchange for brief, but incomparable moments of glory.
