What do you have to offer a potential partner?

A life of adventure.

Why did you apply for the show?

I’m still waiting to meet the person I want to create and share a life with. I saw Brooke was The Bachelorette and felt really drawn to her. She has many qualities that I am really attracted to, especially her caring nature towards young people.

Have you been in love before?

Yes, once. I think we were meant to help each other grow, but not stay together. He supported me through a very difficult time. We both challenged and supported each other to become better versions of ourselves.

What is one trait that might make Brooke run the other way?

I can be very awkward when I like someone and ramble and or tell stories about nothing that go in circles. I hope the right person adores my awkwardness, rather than runs away from it.
