Influences in your life:

“My parents as well as my wife have had a major influence in my life. They have consistently provided support and inspired me to set lofty goals in which have allowed me to grow as a person. They have encouraged me to pursue my dreams all while challenging me to be the best individual I can be. Secondly, Chris Benedict has had a tremendous influence on my life. Without his support, I know I would not be where I am today. He has directly and indirectly taught me life lessons through hard work and dedication to a craft.


He has provided support and encouragement throughout various highs and lows and has inspired me to pursue anything I do with a vigorous passion.”
