If you could have dinner with one person, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
My great grandfather. He came over on a boat and went through Ellis Island. I was old enough when he passed away that I remember him—and I remember him teaching me how to play cards and things like that, but I wasn’t really old enough to really talk about his life and his experience. So I feel like if now I could have that conversation with him, that’d be pretty special.
What are the top two social media sites you use on a regular basis?
Reddit is No. 1. I learn so much—there’s so much there. And then TikTok. It’s probably a product of being a new dad. My TikTok feed is mostly dad hacks and new baby things.
What’s currently on your bedside reading list?
A bunch of new-dad books. And there’s a book that’s been on my bedside probably for years. Every couple of months I’ll crack it open and try to get through another chapter of it. But I enjoy reading it. It’s called “American Colossus,” by H.W. Brands.
What was the last show you binge-watched?
At what age do you hope to retire?
I don’t know that I’ll ever actually fully retire by definition. Like, not work, that’s it, it’s over, I’m on a beach somewhere. I don’t think I can do that. I don’t think I’d want to do that, either. There are a lot of side projects that I’ve got going on besides Giant Spoon. I like figuring out how other businesses tick and operate. While Giant Spoon is definitely 24/7—it’s most of my time for sure—I think things might evolve for me where at some point I reach that point in my life where I want to focus more on these other things. I don’t know what age that will be. Right now I’m enjoying what we’re doing with Giant Spoon.
