"I got a chance to learn the language at UCLA and can get around in Romania." He admitted he actually learned the language pretty quickly because it's Latin-based.

Fan of Music

"I'm a fan of music, sound, and instrumentation." While Kelley enjoys different types of music, he does have a few favorite genres and artists. "I really enjoy oldies and gospel. Specifically, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Kirk Franklin."
