Where are you from?

Metro Detroit

Why are you involved with Six Feet Over?

I am a part of Six Feet Over because through the years I have seen the toll that the loss of friends and loved ones takes on people. I am not gifted in the ways of talking people through these hard and trying times. I am however able to give my time and use my knowledge to help find new ways to raise money to help families that have lost with the financial burdens that may arise.

What emotional reasons?

I lost my best friend Jason back in 2012. I had a complete breakdown and tried to cope with alcohol. After she saw how my choices were making things worse for me, Katie helped me through it and I decided I wanted to help her help other people going through the same things.

What’s your day job?

I am a field service engineer for an automotive supplier.

Who is your hero?

My parents, Craig & Lorna. Also the big sister I never had, Katie Hardy.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Cars, music, and beers.

What really burns your biscuit?

When heated seats malfunction.

What’s your favorite quote?

“Here’s to a long life, and a merry one; a quick death, and a easy one; a pretty girl, and a honest one; a cold beer – and another one!”

I can’t live without:

Cars, music, and beers.

If you could tell a younger you one thing, what would it be?

Don’t worry about what the cool kids in school think of you because you are a good person and that is the coolest thing anyone can be.
