Wow Where do I start?.. Well for my likes, Motorcycles, Bowling (Yeah, I roll 300's) and Pool are my sports. I am a father of 2 girls, who are completely the reason why I breathe.. My girls have inspired me to be the best in life at all things, not from the moment they were born, but from the moment they were conceived. Being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life. I also have a fascination with rescue and law enforcement. I was hired as a full-time fire rescuer the same week I was hired as an on call (not even part-time) radio personality. It’s obvious that I chose radio, and it indeed has been good to me, more so than I am to it. Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who worked in radio for almost 50 years. So I guess you can say I got it honestly. I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great career, which allows me to experience so much the average person will probably never do or see. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality lifestyle that I am blessed to have...To Him be The Glory...The Father, Teacher & Mentor

Here are Paul Carrick Brunson's top 9 myths about men, which is featured on Essence.com.
Men Think About Sex All Day
False. The statistic I frequently hear is that sexual thoughts cross a man's mind every seven seconds. This couldn't be further from the truth. According to the Kinsey Institute, 54 percent of men think about sex every day, but 43 percent only consider it a few times a month or a few times a week, while four percent make it the whole month before pondering the subject.
Men Aren't As Talkative As Women
False. When researchers have tried to compare the number of words used by both men and women in the same situation, the differences were negligible. If anything, studies show men talk a little bit more.
Men Don't Like to Commit
False. This one I blame on the 80/20 rule. I've seen firsthand from my clients that men commit at the same rate as women. The issue comes in with a small percentage of men (I call these the 20 percenters) who habitually enter and leave relationships aka "The Commitment Phobes."
Men Don't Like to Be Asked Out
False. I write about this extensively in my new book, It's Complicated - But It Doesn't Have To Be. Everyone appreciates being admired and having someone show enough interest to ask you out is the ultimate showing of flattery. What people don't want is to be asked out by people they don't like (or don't find attractive).
Men Don't Have Feelings
False. There is definitely a different socialization that happens in adolescence among boys and girls as it relates to being "touchy/feely" but essentially, feelings come from an area in the brain both women and men have. The amygdala is a part of the brain both men and women have that controls our emotional responses.
Men Are Intimidated By Strong Women
False. The word intimidated is the most misused word in dating. Yes, some men (just as some women) are intimidated in select scenarios (like getting set up on a blind date with Grace Jones) but most of the time, like 99% of the time, men are not intimidated (but attracted) to strong women.
Foot or Hand Size Correlates With Penis Size
False. Researchers at University College London say there is no evidence linking a man's shoe or hand size to the length of his penis. After measuring the vital parts of hundreds of men, they concluded that the theory has no scientific basis. The ability to predict the size of a man's penis by observing his shoe size is a common misconception says Dr. Jyoyi Shah.
Men Don't Gossip
False. The Social Issues Research Centre, a nonprofit think tank, has conducted numerous studies on gossip (and how it affects our lives) have found that 33 percent of men indulge in gossip daily or almost every day - compared with 26 percent of women. Yes, men gossip more than women!
