When I was seven years old, my parents brought me along on a cruise trip to Jamaica, Grand Caymen, and Cancun. While in Jamaica, we toured a banana plantation and tried non-alcoholic pina coladas. In Grand Caymen, my father and I went on a submarine ride with amazing views of the sea life on the ocean floor. And finally in Cancun, we snorkeled and I was left in a 3-foot deep kiddy pool without any supervision! I’m lucky I wasn’t kidnapped!
My nickname is Whitey, which I picked up in the lunchroom during my sophomore year of high school from a classmate. Within a week the entire school started calling me it. I took no offense, and actually transformed it into my personal brand. It’s a unique name that people easily remember and it has definitely helped me stand out amongst my peers.
In 2012, I toured across England and did video work for a local Toledo artist named Raine Wilder, and we rented a car and had numerous shows across the country. Before going I assumed England would be a lot like America, but it was way different! It was really cool to experience a new culture and I made many new, life-long friends.

If a genie granted me one wish, it would be to have an endless supply of money. I know that comes off petty, but honestly if you had as much money as you wanted, you could solve almost anything that needed solving. World peace, hunger, homelessness, the Buffalo Bills winning the Super Bowl!
The best place that I have traveled would have to be France…especially the southern parts that go into the countryside. Everything, besides Paris, seemed to be stuck in time, almost positioned perfectly at the precise moment when things were simple and true, when good food with friends was taken seriously, and local wine at lunch was daily.
