"I think farming is the purest way to get into nature. You have a lot of time to introspect yourself and analyze what you want to do to better your life."

AGE: 26

FAVORITES:

  • Music: I like Middle Class Rutt, A Perfect Circle, Eminem, Marilyn Manson and similar types of alternative rock.
  • Food: Fried catfish, Mexican food, and anything that my Mom or stepdad Larry cooks!
  • Drinks: Coffee, Rolling Rock beer, sweet tea.
  • Blue Jeans: Polo, Levi's, and Puma Sweats — love 'em!
  • Thing to do AFTER work: To relax, I call my friends and whatever they’re doing, I’m in. I get home so late we usually go play pool, or watch a game somewhere — I’m a LSU/Saints fan. But I also like to ride motorcycles, watch movies – a lot.
  • Movie Stars: Christian Bale, Robert DeNiro.
  • Tractor: I like to drive a John Deere — we use that to harvest and cut on. I like the old-fashioned kind. They're easier to work on, more simplistic.
  • Mantra: You can’t control what can happen to you, but you can control how you react to it.
