Who do you consider your celebrity doppelgänger?
If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?
What’s your favorite piece of clothing you own/owned?
I have a shirt that has Ham from The Sandlot on it and I wore it to a Yankees game. I saw Aaron Judge wear it during a post-game interview one time and I had to have it.
What TV show best describes your life?
How I Met Your Mother— I relate to Ted on some days, then, on others, I relate to Barney or Marshall. I relate to all the male characters on the show.
How would you describe yourself in one word?
What are you most likely to become famous for?
Probably doing something stupid on Barstool Sports. In actuality, I would hope it would be on ESPN as a reporter.
What is a quote you live by?
“In order to move forward into the future, you need to know where you’ve been.” -Charles Williams
What are you most looking forward to in the next 10 years?
I’m most looking forward to starting my, hopefully, lustrous career. Being financially stable and just moving forward without using my mom as a crutch.
What was the best compliment you’ve received?
That my eye color looks like the ocean.
What is your dream job?
ESPN College Football reporter
