Why are you participating?
My motivation is to help reduce the risk of cancer and bring more funding and awareness. Watching my mother battle stage 4 breast cancer was heartbreaking and also knowing many friends and family members battle this cancer makes me want to do anything I can to help.
My wife and I raise organic chickens for eggs. Gardening is my big hobby. I love food, and there is nothing more rewarding than growing your own food. I am an avid hunter and fisherman and love spending time outdoors.
What is your greatest achievement?
Marrying my wife and being a father hands down.
What brightens your day?
The smile on my son's face every morning. There is nothing better.
What is your favorite vacation spot? Why?
After moving back to Baton Rouge, I really enjoy going back to Chicago in the summer. It is a gastronomical cith with amazing food and entertainment as well as seeing good friends.
