Tell us about your family! 

I have a beautiful loving wife, and four incredible children from 3yrs old to 12. And of course my twin brother.

What was the hardest thing about becoming a dad? 

The transition between doing things for yourself, and now focussing on doing it for my children and their future. This cosmic shift of a focus, allowed me to be more driven and focus on my work, and lead by example so I can be a role model for my children.

Has being a dad impacted your career? How?

Yes! In short, it has made me more sensitive. Some people have kids and they get old, while I feel as though my kids allow me to stay youthful. And that allows me to keep going and pushing.

What's one thing you've learned from your children?
