1. Acting: 
Every role has its own set of challenges and experience.

The feeling of truly being in the moment and nailing the scene is sublime.

2. Playing his guitar: 
I love expressing myself through music. The high you get when performing with a band in front of an audience is just amazing.

3. Lebron James:
My role model in life. I got into basketball rather late, during the era of Lebron James and his mentality and leadership skills are truly admirable.

In my opinion, he is the GOAT — Greatest Of All Time.

4. Graphic novels and comics:
I would pick a comic book over a storybook anytime and I’m always on a hunt for a good read.

My favourites are Hawkeye, Vol. 1: My Life as a Weapon and Killing and Dying by Adrian Tomine — you can buy them from Kinokuniya.



5. Japan:
AKA the land of Anime, Udon and Familymart! My most favourite country in the world!

 Bojack Horseman: In my opinion, the best show on Netflix!
