What do you most love about what you do for a living?
I love the rush of working really hard to prepare for a game and then showcasing that work in front of 70,000+ people.

How would you spend a perfect day in Center City?
I’d workout and have lunch at the Fitler Club, pick up a suit from Damari Savile, get my beard trimmed at Ethos, then go to dinner at Harp & Crown, and finish off the night listening to live music at Time.

"I love shopping at Urban Outfitters, I can get all of the smaller complimentary pieces to go with my Damari Savile suits and even walk out with a new vinyl record."

Tell us about your favorite places to eat in Center City and why:
Harp & Crown, I love the vibe of the restaurant and the food is great. I love Morimoto. Double Knot is another favorite with good food and good drinks.

Tell us about your favorite places to drink in Center City and why:
Time… everyone buys me drinks when I go there! I also love Hop Sing Laundromat because I love speakeasies.
