Bruce was the first of his family to be born in America after his parents immigrated from Vietnam to Los Angeles. His family then moved briefly to Dallas, Texas before eventually setting down roots in Puerto Rico. He was proudly raised in Puerto Rico, and after graduating high school there, he attended the University of Miami studying Biology as a pre-med student. He then moved to North Carolina during the Covid pandemic in search of a fresh start after losing his beloved beagle and best friend, Scoop. On his days off he enjoys hunting, fishing, playing call of duty, and working on cars and motorcycles.
