Give me four sentences that sum you up: what you do, who you are, where you've been...
I am a 28-year-old dream chaser that wears multiple hats on my journey to success.  I am a college student, book cover model (and photog), father figure, and a rental car sales man.  I served 6 years in the Army, with one deployment to the sandbox.  I’m also a crazy cat man; I live with 3 small needy cats.

What was your first tattoo? How old were you?
My first tattoo was a crown with my initials.  I was 19 years old, and got it the first chance I got to leave base after basic training.  I think most people tend to get some form of their name tattooed on themselves as a first tattoo.  I’m very glad I choose to go with initials opposed to my original idea of putting my last name across my back, as you’d see on a jersey.

If you had to pick a favorite piece of ink, which would it be and why?
My favorite tattoo would be the one across my ribs “relentless”.  It reminds me everyday to be relentless in all that I do, and to never give up on your goals no matter how hard the times may seem.   I was going through a rough time in my life at that time and this tattoo reminds me to grow through the struggles instead of bitching out.  I’ll always remember getting this tattoo because of its placement. It hurt so damn much ha… but oddly tickled at the same time.

Do you have more tats planned?
At this point no.  I think if I did it would have to represent something very meaningful.  I currently have 7 tattoos.  I feel like they’re all perfectly placed, and if I get another it would stick out too much…. which would cause me to get many more to try and blend it in.  So in conclusion I think I’ve found a good balance of tats to available skin ha.

Do you buy into tattoos being addictive once you start getting them?
I don’t find them addictive.  I got all my tattoos within a short time frame, so at one point I though an addiction had formed.

What's your life plans for the immediate future? Long-term?
College graduation is coming up this year, and then I’ll be moving across the country for my first professional big boy job.  I’ve been in contact with a few companies recently, and it looks like I’ll be moving out to Minneapolis to start my sales career with Tom James Company.
Lea Note: Congrats to Nathan for something so awesome!

What's something about yourself that most people don't know?
I’m an open book, there’s not much that I keep from the public eye.  I guess some of you might be surprised that I am an introvert.  I enjoy alone time more than socializing.  I prefer to spend my weekend nights editing photos, with a cat curled up in my lap, rather than partying.  I’m a pretty low-key kind of guy.

If you could go back in time and give your younger-self ONE piece of advice, what
would it be?
I’d tell my romantic ass to stay away from women until I was 25.

If you were a superhero, what would your power be? Your weakness?
The perfect superpower would be the perfect memory.

Do you have a good-luck charm or superstition before competing, traveling, etc?
No lucky charms, but I am a strong believer in karma.  I also believe everything happens for a reason.

Favorite TV show or station?
I don’t watch TV.  I fill all my spare time working on personal development.  I watch a lot of YouTube videos, mainly motivational speeches and photography tutorials.

Favorite sport/activity to either participate in or watch?
All through grade school I played basketball, but in my adult years have lost interest.  I focus a lot on fitness and weight training now.  I’ve competed in 4 bodybuilding shows as a natural athlete.

Other than being awesome, do you have hobbies or something you enjoy doing outside work or the gym?
When I lived in Minnesota I enjoyed snowboarding, and of course photography is a huge passion of mine…. and collecting cats.

What was the first vehicle you bought?
1996 Dodge Neon (red) - It wasn’t sexy, but it got the job done.

What's your 'go to' comfort item (food, place, drink, etc)?
Monster energy drinks (orange sugar free) and chocolate chip cookies☺

I’d be stargazing on the deck of a Minnesota cabin, out in the backwoods somewhere.

What's one place you'd love to travel to?
Somewhere tropical, I’d also love to see the pyramids in Egypt

Do you enjoy reading? Who's your fav author, or your fav type of book/magazine (suspense, mystery, biography, paranormal, etc)?
