  • What scares you most about traveling? Language barriers and getting ripped off.
  • What excites you most about traveling? I'm excited to travel with the Race because I know we will be getting to do activities we normally wouldn't think to do on our own. There will be many unique challenges based on the culture we are experiencing, that's what's so fun about the Race.
  • Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Rachel loves to think and take time to make decisions. I think we will have to find a balance with each other's thought processes. Pet peeve about your teammate: She is a clean freak and organization police.
  • What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would love to spend more time in Europe. I've also never been to Southeast Asia so that would be cool.
  • What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I hope my wife and I come out of the race with a stronger marriage. We will obviously have many great memories and laughs to share for the rest of our lives, but we still will have many more "amazing races" ahead of us called "life."
