I am grateful every day that anyone might find what I do entertaining enough to give me a second look.

If there's a better life, I don't know it." he said in a conversation with Rodeo News.
His social media content is what propelled him to fame, but he enjoys keeping it simple for him. "Whenever I get together with my camera man, Randy Quartieri, and Leroy Gibbons, we're like a bunch of little kids giggling and building a tree house. It's just fun. And that's how life should be!
