What’s the First Step to take to being awesome?
I don’t know if there is a First Step to be awesome. But, I do believe everyone should treat others how they want to be treated with kindness, fairness, understanding, encouragement, accountability and positive support.
What’s something positive you try to keep in mind when negativity surrounds you?
Well, I try not to be surrounded by negativity. Of course, that is not always possible. Instead of dwelling on the negative I try and look at the positive and learn from the situation.
Who are your most admired Warriors?
That is easy; my mother is my most admired Warrior!! She has gone through a lot in her life but no matter the challenge that she faces, she still looks at the positives and treats everyone with dignity, respect, kindness, fairness and understanding. No matter what the challenge, she always has a positive attitude and looks at the good of everything.
What’s some beauty seldom seen in Oklahoma?
Some of the beauty most don’t see in Oklahoma are the old historic downtown in Guthrie, Ada and El Reno.
What are some of your favorite places to perform or listen to live music in Oklahoma?
Actually I enjoy performing and listening to music in the old movie theaters that were also Vaudeville theaters built in the 1920’s and 30’s like the McSwain Theater in Ada and the Centre Theater in El Reno. They are historic and intimate venues that feel like the artist is apart of the audience and the audience is part of the show.
Anything else you want to say or let people know?
Life is short, live it to the fullest. Pursue your dreams and passion along with your education. Always strive to improve yourself and surround yourself with positive and encouraging people that will hold you accountable for your actions and keep you grounded.
