If you were to describe what it means to be a man in one word, what would it be and why?
"I would choose the word safe. You see, as a man, I am capable of a lot. One of those is a responsibility to protect others and bring people into an environment that allows them to be able to be free enough to be themselves. It is important to live a life where we allow ourselves to be messy."

Who is the manliest person you know and why?
"My father. I always thought I would never live up to the man my father is. It wasn't until I realized that being a good father comes from being a good son. It is as simple as that."
What does healthy masculinity look like to you?
"A person who operates in their masculinity in a healthy way actually creates an environment for people to, be able to be safe and for people to be themselves."
What advice would you give your younger self about masculinity?
"Don't worry about it.... because worrying about it is only going to prolong the process, instead just keep moving forward. This is the most important thing. You will figure it out."
