“I love tennis, and with Coco Gauff winning, seeing that footage of her in the stands as an 8-year-old girl and then you cut to Coco on the court as the US Open champion-—I just love living those moments. That’s like a movie in itself!”

“I do watch the episodes as they’re getting [edited] because I do all the voiceovers, but I don’t watch it live. I get to watch all the cuts, but the polished one that’s all colored and mixed-—that’s for you, not for me.”

“I’m really envious of the people that make this show because Netflix has access to all the footage, all the POVs from the front and back of the car and inside the driver’s helmet and the landscape shaking up and down!”
