He attended the Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX as well as the University of North Texas in Denton.

His favorite activities are being outside with his dog, Payton, a one-eyed miniature Daschund, watching television and working out. His favorite television shows are “Heroes,” “Project Runway” and “Nip/Tuck.” His hero is Chris LeDoux, a former rodeo cowboy who is now a country music star.
