Growing up he was found to have a loss of hearing at the age of 6 that was corrected and developed into a stuttering problem. Doctor also found him to be dyslexic making reading and writing a real challenge but after years of therapy and rehab he was able to overcome the stuttering problem. He soon found a love in reading after he received a copy of the Lord of the Rings trilogy By J.R.R. Tolkien. He spent years reading in the U.S. Coast Guard while on watch as and engineer.
