What do you do for work?
I'm a firefighter and medical sales rep.
What kind of car do you drive?
What do you like most about being tall?
It helped me with sports when I was younger. If it wasn't for my height, I probably wouldn't have gotten my athletic scholarship.
What do you hate most about being tall?
Finding clothes has always been hard. Most of my clothes are custom.
How tall is your tallest friend?
He says he's 6'3 but he's definitely 6'1.
If you could change your height, would you? Why or why not?
I would opt to be 6'10. If I was taller, I would have definitely made the NBA.
What is the most difficult piece of clothing to find for yourself?
T-shirts. They're either too wide or too tight!
What is your favorite piece of clothing that you have?
I love my suits. I order all my suits custom so when I put them on, they fit perfectly.
What is an interesting fact about yourself?
Even after playing basketball all my life, I still get nervous before every game, even if it's pickup basketball at the park. As a firefighter, I've run into a bunch of burning buildings and never felt nervous once.
Any advice for your fellow tall man?
If you find a piece of clothing that's comfortable and looks good, buy them in all the colors they have. You don't know when you're going to find another piece of clothing that'll look or feel good.
