His Motto - Shoot for the Stars!

His favorite mottos to live by include "be true to yourself" and "stick to who you are and be true to who you are." "I've been very lucky to be raised by two amazing parents and I have an amazing family," he said. "My family definitely keeps me humble and they make sure I stay true to who I am."

"I tell everyone to keep on dreaming big, even though I am living my dream," he said. "Don't set your dreams and your goals small. Set them so large that even if you shoot for the moon and you miss, you are still among the stars. I think that is so amazing," he explained.
