Coming from a small town, less than 8000 people, where everybody waves, has made me the man I am today. Country living runs through my veins as I am a country boy through and through.

Hunting, fishing, and missing are a few of the parts of my make-up, but there is so much more to me. I have a huge heart, I’m loving, I have dreams, goals, and I’m consistent. Consistency is huge for me,...
