One thing people don’t know about you?

Contrary to belief, Fuse3 Solutions wasn’t an elaborate plan that was thought-out over a long-term period.  I took a leap of faith, Adam and I made some great hires and, luckily, we had some early success that propelled us to where we are today.

What’s the most unexpectedly wonderful compliment anyone has ever paid you?

“You’re seriously such a good daddy” – compliments of my beautiful wife, May 29, 2019

Favorite quote? 

“Do Your Best in Everything You Do” -It’s a simple quote, but a trait that my parents taught me at an early age.  It didn’t matter if it was schoolwork, playing a sport, or something as simple as sweeping a sidewalk, always giving my all has proven beneficial.  And, when I fail I have no regrets knowing I gave 100%.   

Favorite day of the year:

Christmas.  July 4th is a close second.

If a movie were made about your life, what genre would it be and who would play you?

Family Comedy – Chris Pratt

What’s something on your bucket list? 

Travel Europe.  I was born in Germany and lived there as a child (Military brat).  I have always wanted to go back and visit the areas where we lived.

Favorite quote?

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

This quote is so true in personal life and especially in the recruiting business. Everybody wants to feel valued and appreciated. How easy is it to smile and say something nice to somebody? You never know how that could change their day/life.

Favorite day of the year?

That’s hard to choose.  It’s always been between 4th of July and Halloween.  I love both days so much. 

In five songs, what is the soundtrack to your life? 

I’m So Humble, Life of the Party, Work Hard Play Hard, I Believe in a Thing Called Love, 2 Legit 2 Quit

Favorite quote?

“This too shall pass”

If a movie were made about your life, what genre would it be and who would play you? 

My movie would definitely be a comedy.  Maybe a romantic comedy.  And I would be honored if Jack Black would play as me.

Education: Bachelor’s in Organizational & Strategic Communications from UCO

What’s the most unexpectedly wonderful compliment anyone has ever paid you? 

I had a teacher in high school tell me that I was an “acquired taste, that’s a good thing”, meaning I have a big personality and not everyone is going to love me initially, but it leaves more for those that do.  This is something I’ve carried with me since I was a teenager.  The older you get, you realize that you might not be for everyone, as everyone isn’t for you, but you learn to love yourself for who you are, no matter what anyone else thinks!

Favorite quote?

One of my favorites is: “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Though this is a well-known quote, it’s one that was very common in my house growing up.  Anytime we failed at anything, my dad would repeat this to us over and over.  As you become an adult and learn to navigate your life personally and professionally, this becomes a mindset to live by – if you want to find success, you have to fail, pick yourself up, and try, try again!

Favorite day of the year? 

“That’s a tough one. I’d have to say April 25th.  Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.”

What’s one truth in your life that sounds like a lie?

Based off looks and personality, you would probably assume I am a girly girl.  Although I have my moments, I am very into sports.  I played basketball my whole life and I played golf for 4 years in high school.  In my free time, I like to run, play golf, and any other sport.  I am the biggest Oklahoma Sooners football fan.  I hope to one day be there to watch the Oklahoma Sooners win another National Championship.

Sky diving, even though I don’t think I could actually get myself to jump out of the plane.

Cats or dogs?

Dogs over cats, always!

Who’s someone you’d like to meet? (they can be living or dead)

Audrey Hepburn has been a hero of mine ever since I was a little girl. Not only for her beauty and natural talent, but for her advocacy for people across the globe. Audrey encapsulates everything I hope to be. She was kind, graceful, generous and a true humanitarian.

If a movie were made about your life, what genre would it be and who would play you?

Definitely a 90s or early 00’s inspired rom com. I’m torn on who would play me as I love both Meg Ryan and Julia Roberts. However, if I did have to choose, I’d have to go with my dog’s namesake, Julia.

What’s the most unexpectedly wonderful compliment anyone has ever paid you?

You are very patient with people…even people who don’t deserve your patience.

I mean…Dogs, of course. But, I am OBSESSED with all animals so I will take them ALL in….even frogs (Kelsey, are you appalled?)

One thing people don’t know about you?
Although I seem pretty high-maintenance, I actually love extreme sports and the great outdoors and have spent months hiking the backcountry all across the US carrying all of the bare essentials on my back!

What’s something on your bucket list?

Best gift you’ve ever gotten?
For our wedding, my mom collected recipes from family and friends & compiled them into a recipe book. It’s one of my most prized possessions.

If you were famous what would you be famous for?
Probably hosting a talk show. I love getting to know people and sometimes come off very interview-ish. Everyone’s story is unique to them and there’s so many things you can learn from a single person.

What superpower do you wish you had?
I wish I could read minds, mostly so I would never have to pick a place to eat.

Favorite quote?  

“When joy is a habit, love is a reflex” – Bob Goff. This quote reminds me about the importance of being positive. If I am a genuinely happy person, I will be able to love the people around me better!

 

Pretend your parents aren’t your parents. Which cultural icons, historical figures, rogues, rebels or reverends would you be the child of?

Okay stay with me here: if Steve Martin and Beyonce had a baby together, that baby would be me. I’m not sure how, but it just makes sense.

Call me cliché but I want to watch the sun set over the Eiffel Tower while listening to Louis Armstrong’s version of La Vie En Rose.

What’s something on your bucket list?

Most of my bucket list involves traveling. I want to spend a few weeks in Italy and do a wine tour. As a bonus, I want to eat a grape right off the vine!

 

Best gift you’ve ever gotten?

My grandma couldn’t attend my college graduation, but she mailed me her gift. It was an old bible she had been using over the past years. She filled it with notes in the margins, highlighted portions and pieces of paper tucked in between the pages. I love having tid bits of her advice and wisdom at my fingertips.

The most unusual thing in my desk drawer is the package of sour gummy worms. I am addicted to those things. It has to be the Trolli worms though.
