"The day I learn to fly, I'm never coming down." If I had to pick one verse that embodies who I am - that's it. It's the opening line to "Heaven Knows" by Rise Against, my favorite band in the world. I love music, dawg. I have a huge collection of records. 9 of them are Billy Joel. I've seen him live. I lost my mind at Garth Brooks. I love Madonna, White Lies, Kanye West, Killswitch Engage, Avenged Sevenfold, Foxy Shazam, The White Stripes, Jason Isbell, Noah Gundersen, The Drive-By Truckers. Jared Leto called me baby at the Gorge during "The Kill." Look it up. I've met Jared Leto, Imagine Dragons, Asking Alexandria, Ronnie Radke, KISS, Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Seether, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Evander Holyfield, Ryan Leaf, and more. I love basketball. I named my daughter after Kyrie Irving. I watch documentaries to remind myself humans aren't the center of the universe. I'm the black sheep of my family. They're quite religious. I'm quite tattooed. I have 10, I think. Yeah, my nose is pierced. I got kicked out of preschool and kindergarten. I was born in Texas, moved to Lincoln City, Ore. I spent two years in American Samoa, then moved back to the States. I did some time in Iowa before coming to Tri-Cities. My grandfather taught the Beach Boys at Hawthorne High School in California.
