Crossfit level 1 instructor
About AndreI would have to say growing up I didn't enjoy watching Disney movies but if I had to pick a character I admired as a young child I pick Arnold Schwarzenegger. I can still remember the first time I watch the movie predator. I was in kindergarten and totally looked up to Arnold from that point on. I played the trumpet for 11 years of my life So picking one song to describe myself is difficult. I enjoy all types of different music and always listening for that next new sound. My choice in music is usually super unique and changes from day to day.
