What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Running 14:40 for a 5k.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

No such thing as perfect happiness, but an ideal day is one where I can feel productive in work, receive a good amount of sunlight, movement and laughed. 

What is your greatest fear?

I don’t have a strong fear.

Whom do you most admire?

Like most, my parents. Special bond that is ours.

I wish I could sing! 

What are your top tips for balancing work and life?

Be happy in the work you do.

What is something new that you learned about running a business this year?

Networking matters. Making hard business decisions aren’t a reflection on your character. You need to have fun.

What is your most marked characteristic?

I’d like to hope it’s around having a happy, fun – productive approach. 

What is your greatest regret?

I lost my friend two months ago. I regret not launching this product sooner to capture him…KINNECT is very inspired by him — he’s given insight to product detail.

When running your business, what do you struggle with most?

Moving at the pace I’d like to be at. 

What advice would you give to yourself at 25 years old?

Keep going. Slow down. Have fun. Those are some of the best years of your life.
