Tell about your family:
I am in a long-time relationship with my girlfriend, Sydney. We met in the spring of 2017 at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas and have been together and having the time of our lives ever since! She is currently an English major at the University of North Texas and is pursuing her dream of becoming a fantasy fiction author and English teacher. I also have a strong relationship with my mother, Brenda, who is a realtor for Keller Williams in North Texas and on the Board of Directors for the Collin County Association of Realtors. She also served as the assistant director of the Celebrate Recovery ministry at my former church. My father, Jim, is a marketing major from Northwood University and does real-estate out of Midlothian, TX.
What do you like to do for fun?
In my free time I love playing music and getting into the Word, spending time with friends, playing with my cat, Shiloh, playing Xbox, working on my truck, and spending time with Sydney.
Where did you grow up?
I was born in Dallas, Texas and raised in Plano, Texas. I grew up in the church and served in the worship and media ministries. I attended K-12 school in Plano and graduated from Plano Senior High School class of 2015. I then attended the Collin College Fire Academy in McKinney, Texas and received my Texas Certification of Fire Protection. Several years after Fire & EMS, I felt the Lord calling me to ministry so I began seminary at Liberty University Online for my B.S. in Worship Studies.
What brought you to Texas?
My mother is a native Texan, and raised in Dallas. My father moved to Texas from Joliet, Illinois, married my mother in 1995, and I was born at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas in 1997. So I really didn’t have a choice lol.
What is your favorite thing about Texas?
Literally everything. You’re talking to a die-hard Texan. But if I had to pick one thing.. It would probably be country music. I love me some George Strait! Texas Forever.
