Fun Facts:

Mac or PC: “I’ve typically worked on Mac for professional and PC on personal.”

Favorite artist: “Right now, I’m really into Ben Rector. He does piano and some guitar.”

Favorite thing as a child: “A Snoopy stuffed animal that I got when I was like 4 years old for my sister’s birthday. I am one of four and my mom was really big on, ‘When it’s one of the kids’ birthdays, someone else gets something too.’ Kind of like, spread the love! So, I got this Snoopy and it came with a workout outfit, a Snoopy business outfit … When I was a little older, I got a little red tractor that I could ride around. Those were the two standouts from my childhood.”

Special hobbies/interests: “I’m a huge baseball fan, growing up in St. Louis. And I dabble in songwriting, playing guitar, and being a world-class dad.”
