Q: What qualities make you a Modern Man?
A: I'd say the fact that I'm a dream chaser and a creator. My life moves with me. I don't rest on my laurels.

I push myself to strive into new ventures and now that I'm a feather, my dreams have never been bigger.
Q: If you had to choose another career, what do you think you would be?
A: I'd be Rocky...Rocky IV to be exact.
Q: Who is the most important person in your life?
A: My son Duke IV pictured here with me.
Q: What is your spirit animal?
A: A dragon from Game of Thrones.
Q: What were you like as a kid?
A: I should probably just leave you with the fact that I dressed like Michael Jackson everywhere I went, even to a baseball party, and I still have my MJ glove framed in my house.
