"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people based on your life experiences, what would it be?"
"This is going to sound simple, but it’s important. Do exactly what you want to do. Have a job you like, hang out with people you like, do what makes you happy. I did that for a long time - lived exactly as I wanted. Then in my mid twenties I decided that maybe I needed a better job so I could make more money, and I needed a nicer car, and I needed to get married etc. I changed my life because I thought I needed to be a certain way. Well at 37 I realized I was really unhappy. So I decided to change back no matter the cost. And it cost me A LOT. But I’m back to doing what I want and I couldn’t be happier."

"If you could go back to any point in this past year and change one thing, what would it be?"
"I wouldn’t have moved out here. I moved from Florida and this place just isn’t good for me."
"I wouldn’t have gotten back together with my ex. I thought there was something still there so I thought we’d try again, but it was AWFUL."

"Stay in school, work hard, don’t sell drugs. I see everybody around me trying to make money the easy way. That money, drug money, won’t make you feel good. It won’t make you feel like you accomplished something real."

"We both have a passion for poetry and music and art. We’re both also really good at throwing kick ass parties. So we decided to take our passion and form a non-profit organization that raises money for various local charities that we feel are worthwhile. There is such a great creative community here but we wanted to take that and make it less about selling tickets and more about helping people."

"What would you say is your biggest regret in life?"
"Not making friends earlier in life. We moved around a lot as kids so I always thought what’s the point in making friends. Well when I was 15 it kind of hit me that I’m kind of crazy and a little weird and it’s probably because I don’t have any friends, I don’t socialize. I wish I had realized that a little sooner."

"Tell me about a family member who had a big impact on your life."
"My paternal grandmother. She was the only one who made me believe it was ok to be me. When my parents wanted to kick me out for being weird, when my brothers wouldn’t talk to me because I was different, she was there for me. She loved me unconditionally."
