Your next life is an animal. Which one?
A great white shark! Raw power sitting at the top of the food tree.

What inspires you?
Being able to take a step towards my dream goal each and everyday is powerful even if they are small steps. But where did the dream come from? My dad, was my hero as a kid being able to follow in his footsteps is great.

I love chilling out in my Chelsea shirt but my go to outfit is some black jeans with a simple black or white t-shirt.
