What are the biggest highlights of your career?
One of my biggest accolades as an athlete was when I was part of a team of guys to be the first ever to generate enough kinetic energy to power a Tesla. We rode a BikeERG, SkiERG, or rower for 8 hours per day for 2 weeks in the Las Vegas heat to do it and it was the hardest physical feat I've ever attempted.
