I’m married. I’ve been married for three years, and I have two children. I’m learning to balance. I relieve stress by working on cars.
I like to build race cars. I’ve got two projects going right now. Like, real, full-size, drag-racing cars. I got into it around the time the movie ‘The Fast and The Furious’ came out. That really got me into it. And when building cars, you pretty much have to tackle it like an engineering problem. You have a problem, and you need to design a solution. There are steps to get there that include lots of research and designing, and trial and error.
The engineering department here has helped me to think more logically when it comes to building race cars. They’ve helped me to see the whole picture and break it into smaller problems that need solutions.”
