He loved stopping at any body of water and being at the many rivers he would frequent and was his favorite place to be. He was also a very creative and expressive person, taking on many hobbies such as reading, drawing, journaling and being outdoors as much as possible. A chef of sorts (known for creating his world-famous omelets), perfecting his craft of skateboarding and his goal of training to become the greatest MMA fighter alive.
