Life has taught me many lessons, each seeming more valuable than the last. Through my experiences and travels, I have learned that the majority of the world is corrupt in one way or another. Self-respect is something you can never buy back. Don't adopt other's opinions as your own without knowing something about the subject. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Very rarely is anything free, and finally, most people do things and make decisions based on whether or not they benefit from it. Being a nice person doesn't mean you'll have an easier life, it just means you can smile at yourself when you look in the mirror.
For those of you who don't know me personally, I grew up on a cattle ranch in Southern Oklahoma. I had the best childhood imaginable, and only hope to provide my family with the same opportunities I had. No, we didn't have a ton of money, but we always had eachother, and I'm coming to realize that close family ties are becoming increasingly rare. I left home in January of 2008 and moved to New York City to pursue a career in modeling and acting, I landed a great agency and started working, but after a while I decided New York wasn't for me. I've returned to my home town to pursue business interests, and in 2009 will have that part of my life wrapped up. I can stay in Oklahoma and be a positive influence on hundreds of lives, or I can sacrifice my personal life and agenda to become a public figure in the entertainment industry and touch the lives of millions. I am choosing the latter. It will be a tiresome and rocky road to travel and I appreciate any helping hand that I might encounter along the way. I'm very grounded and no amount of fortune or recognition will change who I am or what I believe in.
One more thing, I'm grateful that you've taken a few minutes out of your busy life to visit my page, I hope it was time well spent. Have a great day!
Due to the partially/completely insane individuals who find it appropriate to email my agent regarding my personal information, I no longer post my agency contact information for the public to see. If you are interested in working with me, let me know and I'll set you up with my agent.
