Biographies of Elon Musk and Richard Branson sit on his nightstand, as does a piece of the zip-line from the Nicaraguan volcano, rusty from the corrosive air; a python skin the length of the wall hangs above his bathroom door. He got it during the year he spent traveling the world alone, after working 12 months of doubles at a P.F. Chang’s to cover the trip. “We ate that snake,” he says. “That was a different life.”
