“You can take the boy out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy.” No truer words have ever been spoken, and these words define my transition from La. to L.A.

As a young buck, I enjoyed all that Louisiana, A Sportsman’s Paradise, had to offer. My friends and I loved to tromp through the woods around Bentley and Pineville….fishing, hunting, swimming and riding 4wheelers. The remainder of my free time was occupied with sports, science and 4-H fairs, and the occasional Pinewood Derby. Growing up here was everything a country boy could have ever wanted.

After graduating from Louisiana Tech, I was employed as a Chemical Engineer by Exxon. Although Exxon provided me with great experiences such as working in Europe and Africa, something inside me still felt unfulfilled.  Hollywood beckoned, and I answered.

The world of entertainment is vastly different from anything I have ever known, but the values instilled upon me growing up in Louisiana have served me well. I consider it a great honor to be chosen as your Grand Marshal, and I’m looking forward to it! Just yell, “ Throw me something, mister”, and I’ll know I’m home.
