Go-to breakfast:

Oatmeal – made on the stove top, baked in the oven, or chilled in the fridge overnight (in the summer).

Favorite stress reliever:
Exercise! Even if it’s just walking my dog, I have to move when I’m stressed.

Homemade cinnamon rolls – the time, effort, and calories are worth it once or twice a year!

Favorite music to exercise to:
Depends on the workout, but for running, anything by Rhianna or Fall Out Boy.

Most surprising talent:
Knowing more about baseball (especially about the Pittsburgh Pirates) than most guys.

Daily inspiration:
Remembering my favorite quote: “Each day is a gift,” and being grateful for what I have.

Biggest challenge:
Trying to accomplish too many things in one day.

Favorite workout:
Spinning or hot yoga

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would play you?
