• What's your travel goal for 2018?  To photograph hot lava in person. Until now, the closest I've gotten is jumping from sofa to ottoman in my living room and trying my best not to touch the floor.

  • What Disney character would you be and why? Mulan. Her story exemplifies bravery, loyalty, and leadership.

  • What sparked your interest in cars?  I was basically born with it in my DNA. Restoration and recovery was our family business for generations. My first job was prepping cars for the paint booth. It was there that I learned the true value and frustration of being meticulous. 

  • What's your favorite city? This is an easy one. Austin. I didn't grow up there but after living there for a number of years, Austin will always feel like coming "home" to me. It's also the city where Kristin and I first met.  

  • Describe the color yellow. Yellow is stepping outside on a spring day and feeling the warmth of the sun on your face. It's the taste of banana pudding served in the south. 



  • Which of Santa's reindeer is your favorite?  Vixen

  • If you could own any performance vehicle, which would you choose?  A Lamborghini Aventador S

  • What is your most embarrassing moment? When I was a freshman in college, I choked on Chicken A La King in the cafeteria and someone had to perform the Heimlich on me in front of hundreds of my peers. The fact that I walked back into that cafeteria eventually is probably a testament to my fortitude. 

  • What was your first car? A 1977 Dodge Aspen

  • What's your favorite city to visit? I have two, actually, each for very different reasons: Rome, Italy; and Halifax, Nova Scotia. In Rome, I feel as though I'm at home. I love the feeling that I am with my people. Halifax is very cozy and in the fall when its autumn colors are in full regalia, it's absolutely gorgeous.
