What was your favorite subject in school?
Math. Because that was my strongest subject.

If you won $100 million, what would you buy first?
I would buy my father a tour bus, the kind of tour bus a celebrity would have.

If you had to choose just one place to vacation every year for the rest of your life, where would it be?
Jamaica

What are some of the different jobs that you have had in your life?
I sold tea at a tea stand at the NASCAR races. It was actually a very cool experience.

Do you have a favorite quote or saying that inspires you?
"Let's do it." It means a lot of different things for me. When I'm talking to my kids it's, "Let's do it, let's go," and if I'm at work, "let's do it" means let's knock this work out and have fun while doing it.

If you could try out any job for a day, what would you like to try?
I would choose to be a NASCAR driver.

Who was your childhood celebrity crush?
Ashanti the R&B artist.

Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?
Smith's because I am in love with food, just can't get enough of it.

The last concert you attended?
I attended an E-40 concert on September 12, 2014, the night before I got married.

In one sentence, what does the future of Downtown Las Vegas look like to you?
The future of downtown looks like a fun place for locals and tourists to come and have a good time.
