"It's a hell of a lot different," he said. "I'm a lot more settled in my 40s than I was in my 20s. I'm in a different place in life. I don't feel so much like I'm trying to prove myself every single day and trying to chase this thing that seems so out of reach."

"It feels good to know that for the last 16 years, I've had a chance to wake up and go do a job that I truly love to do," he added. "If it all went away tomorrow, I'd be like, 'My kids are good. It's been great.' I got no regrets at all."
