My favorite musicians, one of them is Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach! I always admired his inspirational lyrics and energy
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?

Woodland, California—If I had to take you to one place it would have to be a local BBQ restaurant called Ludy's that I used to work at. I felt I did a lot of growing up there and it kind of defines my town
