Occupation: Electronics Clerk

I Am From:  Spokane, WA (East Central)

High School /College:  Lewis and Clark (completed)/ took some college

Favorite Flavor of Ice Cream:  Chocolate (Nothing beats chocolate. Super Chocolate, perhaps)

Worst First Date:  "This was embarrassing. Back in high school, I was taking my date to a nice dinner downtown. She wasn't fully ready to go yet, so I waited inside, in her living room. Her Parents were as sweet as can be. We were ‘chopping it up' while my date was up stairs getting ready. It was then that I realized that I had LOCKED MY KEYS IN THE CAR... ‘Oh lord,' I thought to myself. So I called my mom (it was her car after all) to see if she had a spare at home. Of course, she did not. Right about then, my date came downstairs, looking fantastic, ready to go and all that. I'm internally freaking out.

      I explained the situation to the three of them standing there. Her father had a look on his face, as if to say ‘I'm embarrassed for you.' The mother sweetly recommended that I drive their family van to dinner. Keep in mind, I was still a bit fresh ‘behind the wheel' at the time so at first I said ‘no, that's okay,' but they insisted. Plus, you never want to make a woman wait, so I agreed to sit my mildly-experienced self behind the wheel of a vehicle larger than what I'm used to, with my date in the passenger seat, who also seemed slightly embarrassed of the situation.

      Anyway, I start the van and head downtown. About halfway there, I try to switch lanes to my right. And of course, unfamiliar with the blind spots, I just about ‘bulldoze' the car next to me. HOOONK!!! I swooped back into my lane (Oh lord). You should have seen the look on my dates face...

          But it started to get better from there. The dinner was good. The dancing was fun. And I think I got a kiss by the end of the night. It was all worth it.

... and my car was safely unlocked by the tow-truck guy the next morning."

Favorite Bad Song:  Michael Jackson's ‘BAD' (get it?)

The Song That Always Gets Stuck In My Head:  Whatever song I'm writing at the time

Where Someone Would Most Likely Catch Me Singing:  In the shower.

Movie Line That You Can't Stop Repeating:  "Be like water my friend" DRAGON: a Bruce Lee Story

Motto For Life: ‘Love. It can only help'

The First Time I Knew I Wanted To Sing:  When I performed with my dad on stage at church. Way back when I was about 4 or 5

Superstitions, Rituals, or Good Luck Charms:  I always use the restroom before a big performance.

Finish The Sentence: Voters should Gimme the MIKE because....  I'm a hard worker with a great deal of respect for the talents given to me. Winning this will mark a milestone on my quest to becoming. It would help a great deal. And plus, I need a reliable car!!!
