How many pairs of shoes do you own?

Three. Two pair of Yore Unlimited custom shoes and one pair of running shoes.

Which mountains are your favorite — Smoky, Blue Ridge, Rocky, Appalachian, or Catskill?

Appalachian, because I’m currently driving through them. But if I’m being honest, probably the Rockies.

If you were a liquor, what would you be?

Bulleit Rye.

Fate or free will?

Free will (though, that plus desire and hard work = Fate).

Sweet or sour?

Sour.

Sunrise or sunset?

Sunrise. Though it’s been awhile since I last witnessed one.
