Tell us a little about yourself, your family, and where you grew up:
I grew up in a quiet little farming community just outside of Ponce de Leon, Florida called Bridge Creek. It was a place where you waved at every car you passed and neighbors helped each other out if they were in need. My mother and father were incredibly hard workers who somehow managed to raise me, operate a small cattle ranch, and work in the medical field on top of it all. On the farm I cultivated a love of exploration and outdoors, hard work, and appreciation for the land.
