What was your first job?

My first job was shucking oysters and making flatbread pizzas for a local seafood restaurant. This was not particularly enjoyable because of my dislike of seafood.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Diamondhead, Mississippi, which is right on the coast. I was able to see the Gulf of Mexico from my kitchen window!

Do you have any pets?

My family and I rescued our dog Wilson in 2016! Ever since he has been the best companion a family could ask for!

How do you spend your free time?

I tend to spend a lot of my free time being around and flying hot air balloons! I have been around hot air balloons my whole life due to both of my parents being pilots. Currently I am working on getting my pilot’s license too!
