A:

My parents. They always encouraged me to follow my heart and never deterred me from taking risks.



Q: Do you have a morning or night routine that has made your life better?

A:

Most of my life is a pretty strict routine. In the am I get up at 530 or 6 brush my teeth with PRNCPLS tooth paste while I take a cold shower. I have a glass of lemon water. Then I walk and feed my dog. After that I go to practice ashtanga yoga for about an hour and 40 min. Make a smoothie and eat some oatmeal while I take care of email and things for the school. Hang out with my wife and son for a bit then off to teach and train at Clockwork.
