I'm just an average man with an average life. Oh, wait. That's already been used in a song. Anyway, I'm a Lafayette native, graduate of Beau Chêne High School and Princeton University, and a lifelong (mostly suffering) New Orleans Saints fan. Growing up, I wanted to be the world heavyweight champion. I've at least attained heavyweight status. I've been told that if I were a wrestler, I'd be called the "Hot Mess Express."
