We asked Garrett:
What inspires you?
I am always inspired by the rate of change and level of success possible when a great idea is pursued by someone with passion and dedication.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
If I could live anywhere in the world it would probably be in a cabin on a mountainside. I believe the raw beauty and sometimes harsh realities of nature bring out the best in people.
Other than spending time with friends and family, what do you do in your spare time?
I try to get outside in my spare time, where I can hear my own thoughts and find some balance. This gives me the energy I need to move forward.
