Official CBS Island of the Idols bio excerpts (September 9, 2019):
"Pet peeves: Bullies, slow walkers, and when someone coughs or sneezes without covering their mouth.
What accomplishment are you most proud of? Starting my own firm. I am really proud of myself and it makes me happy. I'm also proud of the life my wife and I are building together. We are both blossoming in our respective businesses at the same time. We are just very in sync right now.
What's one thing we wouldn't know from seeing a photo of you? I'm a huge Phish fan. I met my wife at a Phish concert.
Which Survivor contestant are you most like? A mix of Stephen Fishbach/Adam Klein/Cochran 2.0/Rob Cesternino and weirdly a little Tony Vlachos. Buckle up baby, it's going to be a wild ride.
Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? Survivor is a relationship-based game. First, I will develop the relationships needed to win the game. I have a deep and fundamental understanding of human communication and connection. I have an uncanny ability to make strangers feel at ease. I disarm them with humor and self-deprecation. But I reinforce the connections with true and sincere interest and care. I will build relationships that will not only take me further into the game, but will win me the votes at final Tribal Council. Second, I will take control of my game and lead my allies to make favorable decisions to my game. I am a natural leader. Third, I will outwork my competition; I am an animal. I am resilient and hardworking. When I start something, I NEED to finish it."
