Is there one person who has influenced your life or work?
My grandfather was an amazing guy. He was this sort of self-actualized, ultimate role model. Kind of a Brando or Hemingway type. Handsome, rugged, but also super smart and thoughtful. He traveled the world with my grandmother—and they prioritized travel—so they visited a new place every year throughout their entire lives. They had a room in their house that was filled with artifacts and acquisitions from their trips. There was stuff from Africa, Europe, Asia, and all over the globe. It was something like you would see in Indiana Jones’s house. As a kid, growing up in a real small town, that room always filled me with this crazy inspiration to get out into the world, travel and seek adventures.
