I Am From: Born in Corry, Pennsylvania...raised in Ft. Myers, Florida...living and working in Yakima, Washington for the past 8 years.
High School /College: Cypress Lake High School (in Ft. Myers, FL)/ University of Missouri at Kansas City Dental School
Favorite Flavor of Ice Cream: Strawberry Cheesecake
Worst First Date: Gorgeous and mysterious Italian guy I met at a restaurant that I worked at in Kansas City...I was so flattered that he actually wanted to go on a date with me...until he took me back to his place to "meet his roommate"...don't remember meeting any roommate, but I sure do remember realizing what a freak this guy was when he disappeared in to his bedroom and came back out in his underwear stating he wanted to get more comfortable...HOW LAME!! Needless to say that relationship lasted a record two hours. Thank God he was just a weirdo and not a serial killer!!
Favorite Bad Song: Every 80's song ever created!! I love the 80's!!
The Song That Always Gets Stuck In My Head: London Bridges by Fergi...drives me insane!
Where Someone Would Likely Catch Me Singing: At my church in Yakima.
Movie Line That I Can't Stop Repeating: "But Wesley, what about the ROUS's?"...Wesley answers: "Rodents of unusual size? I don't think they exist." Then the ridiculous looking large rat attacks them. I love "The Princess Bride"...lots of great quotable lines.
Motto For Life: Matthew 6:33 - Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be given to you as well.
Pets: Two dogs. They are like my kids. Half Lab and half Pointer. Jackson and Halle...brother and sister as well as life partners...don't ask it's a dog thing!
The First Time I Knew I Wanted To Sing: I was five years old and listening to Olivia Newton John songs and trying to sound exactly like her.
Superstitions, Rituals, or Good Luck Charms: On performance day I will try to talk as little as possible and a little higher than I normally would and I will run through my song only lightly and warm up so that my vocal chords are rested and fully ready to go! The more I try to practice and go over and over a song on the day of performance I think the worse it gets!
Finish The Sentence: Voters should Gimme The Mike because....I plan on sharing my gift with people in this country and God willing in other countries as well sooner or later, and it would just be awesome to get to start sooner by winning this competition!! I am just so excited that I have made it this far, and I look forward to showing you all my best performance possible at the Semi-Finals!! Thanks everybody! Please vote for me!!
