Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I am a 24 year old part time distribution center worker and a full time father. I’m happily married and have a 1 year old son. I’m really into music (anything but country), gaming, and sports/esports.

What Inspires You Every day? : My wife and my son. Every day I wake up, everything I do is for them. They give me everything I need in life, and without them I wouldn’t be the person I am today. If I’d even still be here.

What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Why so serious? I know it’s a joker quote but think of it deeper than a line said by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. Why do we take everything so seriously? We spend our lives worrying and worrying, we often forget to stop and laugh, smile, goof around, and just have fun. If we take everything too seriously, there’s no fun in life. Who wants a boring, serious life 24/7? Not me.

What is your ultimate goal in life? : I want to make sure that my kids are set for when I leave this Earth. I want to make sure my kids don’t have to want anything when I pass. A little side goal would be to leave a legacy of being a great father and a loving husband/family man. Nothings more important to me than my family.

How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : 2020 was difficult. I was laid off 4 times due to COVID shutting places down or causing layoffs. If it wasn’t for the birth of our son in February I’m not sure how we would be right now. He really helped keep focused. Now we are doing good. Not comfortable per say, but definitely much better than how we were.

What is a message you would like to give others? : Don’t live life without humor, love, or joy. Living without those isn’t living at all, it’s merely existing. Also, promote Peace and Love. The world is full of too much hate.

What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: It’s been a ride. 24 years of ups and downs. No father. Inactive mother. Lost a sister at 8 months old. Raised by my grandparents. Bullied in high school (severely). Abused in relationships. Cheated on a fuck ton. I’ve been addicted to drugs and alcohol. And now I’m over 3 almost 4 years clean. I’m lucky to be alive, and I’m insanely grateful to be here still today. I guess a parting message would be, It gets better. I promise you, whatever you’re going through, it will pass. You will find your purpose if you’re lost. You’ll find your person if you’re lonely. You’ll find your passion if you’re confused about the direction you should take with your life. All you have to do is believe in yourself, and find the right people to help support you. You can do a lot by yourself, but with at least 1 other person helping it becomes much easier.
