An interesting note about me: I speak sarcasm. I have an irreverent motorsports podcast named none other than ‘I hate racing radio’, which of course is sarcasm. I started a non-profit called Project O2 centered on asthma awareness.   I am a former collegiate football player, I have asthma and more of a “wirey” build.
