His parents were 19 when they started their family, his dad had to work three unfulfilling jobs in order to keep the family afloat. This increased tensions and arguments at home.
He now describes the youthful version of himself as ‘tall, skinny, goofy looking and constantly made fun’, he was bullied throughout his childhood years. He also struggled severely academically, in 8th grade he was assessed to have the reading level of a 2nd grade child.
