Q: How has becoming a dad changed your outlook on life?
A: It has given me a broader outlook in terms of importance and urgency and has taught me to be more patient.
Q: What’s the life philosophy/approach to life that you what to impart to your kids?
A: Whatever you choose to do, do it well and try lots of stuff early on to figure out what you enjoy.
Q: What’s your best dad moment? Any anecdotes?
A: The day the kids were born. I highly recommend being present at birth and always be prepared for the inevitable birds and bees questions.
