The Amazing Race is a Reality program featuring 11 teams of 2 (except the third, fourth, eleventh and "family edition" which had 12 teams) racing around the world for a cash prize of $1,000,000. The teams compete in thirteen legs traveling all over the world.
How many total followers do you have across all platforms? Across all channels and sites, Rooster Teeth has probably... 18+ million.
Hometown: Austin, Texas
Connection to your teammate: Girlfriend
Current occupation: Executive Producer of “The Know”
Describe what you do: I run “The Know”, an informational brand of content for Rooster Teeth. We do news and more about video games, movies, TV, tech, and science. If it's cool and you want to know about it, so do we.
3 words to describe you: Geeky, smart and competitive.
Favorite hobbies: Video games, reading and running.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I've created a place for myself online that enables me to do everything I love the most for a living: keep up to date on geeky interests and share that with others, play video games and talk about them, and learn something new every day.
What scares you most about traveling? The risk of getting stranded in a foreign country without the resources to get myself home.
What excites you most about traveling? Throwing away the box I usually live in and immersing myself in other cultures and ways of life.
Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Making sure we balance each other’s strengths and weaknesses to be the best team we can.
Pet peeve about your teammate: He's better at just about everything than I am, which would be more annoying if I didn't like him so much. Luckily it's us against the world, not us against each other.
What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Bora Bora in French Polynesia -- I love water activities and beaches and heat. Add glass bottom huts, drinks with umbrellas, and I'm set.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? This is our chance to compete in a huge game that spans the globe, and we want to be the team that plays it best.
