I’ve always loved the song Where Is The Love? by the Black Eyed Peas and Justin Timberlake. I would, and still do to this day, rap all of the lyrics by The Black Eyed Peas and sing all of JT’s high notes in the chorus to my mom in the car.

As long the music is loud, I’m singing at the top of my lungs, and most importantly, there’s cruise control. There have been times where I have done this...

Chances are that if you have siblings then you have some similar tastes, similar personalities, or passions. For me, that experience was tenfold. Being the oldest of three siblings, my brothers Ryan and the youngest Spencer, we always looked for ways to fit in a little better then we had. Growing...

The Golden State Warriors play a brand of Basketball that can be compared to Poetry in motion. Their team is just too skilled for anyone else in the NBA to match up with.

Going to Hong Kong this past summer reaffirmed my love for this great cuisine. Trust me, this ain't the Asian...
