Outside your family, what is your passion, or what makes you tick?
Definitely playing music. I’ve been playing the drums since the seventh grade, and haven’t stopped since.

What’s your favorite team?
I’ve got to stay loyal to my state, so I’d have to say the Carolina Panthers. But as for college football, it’s definitely the Georgia Bulldogs.

What was your first thought when you held your brand new baby?
My first thought was “I’m really happy this change is here.” Having a new baby was a life changing experience, but a very welcomed one.

What’s the best thing about being a dad?
The best thing about being a dad is being able to better understand God as a father because I’m a father myself. God has really shown me His sacrificial love through my own love for my own children.
