BIRTHPLACE

Killeen, Texas

FAVORITE DAY/EXPERIENCE

My favorite day was my birthday in 2016.  It was the first and only time anyone, my wife—then girlfriend, has thrown me a surprise.  Everyone close to me was there and my dad made burgers for all my friends.  It was the last birthday I was able to celebrate with him and it was absolutely amazing.

WHEN I’M NOT AT CHURCH OR WITH MY FAMILY…

I’m working out, writing songs, or hanging out with friends.  Although, my wife is friends with pretty much all my friends so we usually stick together.

FAVORITE MOVIE(S)

Interstellar.  I’m a big astrophysics/science geek and they got pretty much everything right in this movie.

FAVORITE FOOD

Meat.  Make me a stir fry and go heavy on shrimp, steak, or chicken and we’ll be friends for a long time.

GOT PETS?

Hayley and I have one dog, Darla.  She’s our 70lb baby and we love her… most of the time.

FAVORITE QUOTE(S)
