He collects sneakers…lots of them. He spends his time ‘nerding’ out to talks by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and gets his inspiration from TedTalks and by reading multiple books at once.

Astrophysics is a good place to start, not joking. But if you’re not scientifically-minded try sports like football (he hates calling it soccer) and Formula 1.
