From the absolute first shoot I did, five minutes later, I thought: Where has this been for what seems like forever? Mark said. Alright, my mom forced me to participate in three varsity sports and my life took a wrong turn when I decided to seriously pursue fencing instead of wrestling in my daily high school schedule. Joe Rogan was among the people who commented on the Mark Zuckerberg video. This is perfect! I’m so glad to see this, he composed it. Training looks strong too!
