Why are you participating?
My grandmother was a breast cancer surivor and though she won her battle with breast cancer, I recall seeing her tiresome battle with this terrible disease. Anything I can do to prevent those I love, both family and friends, from ever having to go through such an ordeal, I will do. Together, we can wipe out breast cancer once and for all.
In 2004, when I moved to Baton Rouge, I saw an audition notice for a comedy, "The Complete History of America (abridged)" at what was at that time, Baton Rouge Little Theatre. I had never done any type of theatre in my life, with the exception of a Senior play in high school, but I figured I would go and audition. I didn't think I would get cast, but at least I would meet some new people in my new town. Well, I did get cast, and that began a 14 year love affair with theatre and the people of this organization. Theatre has given me some of the best friends a person could ask for, and it is where I met the love of my life, my wife, Michele Johnson.

What is your favorite vacation spot? Why?
