You’ve been labeled as the GrillMaster, where did that name come from?

Ha-ha. When I got to South Florida and the Dolphins, I would be on the grill. People loved my food and what I was doing got around about my skills and just like that, I was labeled the master because I’m pretty good at it.

Do you feel like cooking is an acquired skill? Who taught you?

I’m from Louisiana so my mom can cook, all my people can cook. It is apart of the culture over there. So, I took out time and learned from my mom. Whoever says cooking isn’t a skill is lying however it’s an easy skill to learn. The more you try at it, the better you can get.

What life lessons did you learn from your parents that are helping you in life today?

My parents definitely taught me hard work and it’s something I have always used. I got to where I am right now because of hard work. It’s not a magic trick. I got to be where I am because of hard work, dedication, and doing the right thing. It’s important to stay out of trouble and stay humble.
