A native Paducahan, Hooper enjoys spending time with his children and volunteering in various causes - politically and nerdy a like. With a "nothing off-limits" humor, Hooper can be a contentious "young" advocate but is very active in grassroots networking and volunteerism and activism. His skills in event/cause management and promotion and volunteer driving have led to his involvement with several civic groups, causes, and events.

"I must study politics and war, that our sons may have the liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. Our sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain."         John Adams
