If you could do anything you want right now, what would it be?
Explore space. Or be a full-time philanthropist. Or be a full-time philanthropist that travels through space helping people out.
What’s your favorite food?
Food is my love language. I love cooking and try to make dinner for my family every night, so we rotate through a lot of recipes in my house. If I had to pick a singular dish as my favorite though, it wouldn’t be something I make: it would be the Beef Wrap (basically a fancy Gyro) from Devine Foods in Columbia, SC where I grew up. I worked there back in the day and frequented the place for decades. They closed their doors several years ago, but I still dream about their food.
What about family?
I’ve been married for nine years with two kids (three if you count the dog). My wife Lauren has never met a stranger, and she can put together a pretty mean gift basket. My son will be four this summer, my daughter will be one, and Sunny the mini Yorkie turned 5 this year. They’re all pretty great – most of the time.
Favorite video game?
If my kids are asleep and it’s a weeknight you’ll find me either making music or gaming.
“You’re not wrong, Walter, you’re just …….” – The Big Lebowski
Favorite place to visit?
Colorado. My family has a place on the Western Slope where I’ve gone my whole life. Being able to share that with my family and now my kids is just incredible, so I try to get out there as much as I can.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
Coffee, coffee, and more coffee.
Biggest or most meaningful recent personal accomplishment?
I have a lot to be grateful for – my family, friends, and bandmates to start – but I think one of the biggest accomplishments recently was getting debt free. We still owe on our house, but even with two kids in daycare we managed to pay off all other debts, which is an incredible feeling.
What is one unique thing about you that few people know?
I like to record hip songs about robots when no one is around.
