On the creative process with Trolli:
It’s a match made in heaven, Trolli comes up with some bonkers idea, and they bring it to me, and then they’re like, ‘Oh, I don’t think he would do that—it’s just too crazy.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it.’
On what motivates him to reach his professional goals:
The more you work, the more you figure out how to be great. Just keep adjusting, keep adapting, the key is knowing who you are—believing not only that you can find the giant’s weakness but also that you are the giant, our goal is to be the best, not the best who’s out right now, but the best, you know, longevity.
On wearing pink glitter shorts:
Pink glitter shorts, You’re judging me already. I can see it in your face, that’s one of those outfits where, you know, it’ll go on Instagram and guys will be like, ‘What the heck is he wearing?’ Most guys wouldn’t do that. Most guys don’t want that attention.
