I am a product of a single parent home and I was raised by my mother. I didn’t meet my father until I was 20-years old. As a result, my family is very important to me. I am proud of the fact that I have been married and faithful to my beautiful wife Kasandra for 10-years and being a father to a wonderful 4-year old daughter named Kennedy.
