Random Fact About Yourself I have one hand, kind of speaks for itself.

Favorite Clemson Moment Watching the Clemson vs. Notre Dame game of 2015 in a torrential downpour. After we won the game, rushed the field, and sang the Alma Mater arm in arm, I knew I had found a home in Clemson.

Favorite Musical Moment In my very first big performance with TIGEROAR, I was given the solo to Justin Timberlake's "My Love" to perform in front of a packed crowd. As the first lines of the song came out of my mouth and the entire audience cheered, I became so incredibly humbled by what this group meant to Clemson University and its students.

Favorite Non-Musical Moment My favorite non-musical moment in TIGEROAR not related to music happened on one of our weekend retreats we take every semester. This one particular time about half of us arrived at our house for the weekend earlier than the others. We had nothing to do...until someone found Monopoly in the living room. Let's just say when you give a few very competitive, college boys nothing to do besides a play a board game...it will be the most intense game of Monopoly you have ever seen.
