MJ has lived in several places. He is originally from Virginia, but being the child of a military father has afforded him to opportunity to live in Virginia, South Carolina, Guam, and, of course, the great state of Texas! His fiancé, Elisabeth (Sawyer) is an elementary school teacher. They're getting hitched in July!
MJ enjoys running, reading, and wearing really big headphones while also wearing sunglasses in his spare time.
