What did you want to be when you grew up?

Maybe it was from watching John Wayne movies with my grandpa, or Woody from Toy Story, but I wanted to be a cowboy when I grew up! While I do not have cattle or a ranch, I am an Oklahoma State University Cowboy. Go Pokes!

What is your favorite movie, TV show, or play/musical, book that you can watch/read over and over again?

I have seen the movie School of Rock (with Jack Black) probably over 100 times and can quote most of it from heart. The Office is a TV show I can watch repeatedly and find hilarious again and again.

What is your favorite hobby/what do you like to do in your free time?

I am an active road racing cyclist, so in my free time I spend hours on the bike doing long solo rides, weekend group rides, and criterium racing. Criterium races or “crits” for short are fast pace, short circuit races on a closed course, where cyclists take corners at high speeds and experience exciting sprint finishes! Tulsa hosts one of the largest races in the U.S. called “Tulsa Tough”. This three-day cycling festival brings more than 50,000 spectators to watch, and racers from all over the world.
