Raised on cornbread and black eyed peas, JR grew up in the small town of Ruston, Louisiana. At 18 he left to study New Media Communication at Centenary College of Louisiana in Shreveport. While a student, he spent most of his time acting as an assistant debate coach at a local high school where he coached students at competitions across the nation. Since graduating, he has worked both in the education and marketing fields before moving cross country to attend graduate school at the University of Southern California. His most recent venture was interning for a year at Walt Disney Studios where he played a role in the international marketing and publicity initiatives of 9 major motion pictures. He enjoys paddle boarding and playing Texas Hold’em (sadly though, not at the same time).
