Chris | Actor | Atlanta, GA

 
 

Chris… What to say about Chris and how to describe him? Chris is like an onion; a multifaceted human being that one day can be a comedian who throws out one joke after the other, the next day he is the thinker who is either thinking about his next time he can have a good time or he is simply trying to figure out life and what to do with it. There is so much to do and I sometimes feel Chris does it all (whether he wants to or not). He goes to school full time to fulfill his dream of becoming an actor, he works multiple jobs, he is a personal trainer, and a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fanatic. He loves a good time and Chris makes times good. He is outgoing (which probably helps with becoming an actor) and can always respond with a great hashtag (#). But Chris is not all fun. Chris is also one of this country’s heroes and has been deployed multiple times. I don’t want to imagine what these eyes have seen but it’s definitely not all green meadows and unicorns. He is the perfect embodiment of ‘silent waters run deep’ in my book and that is the reason I’m calling him an onion. There are so many different sides to him and I feel that acting is THE perfect outlet for all of his facets.

Wills Park Equestrian Center | Hunter Jumper

The sun was shining, the sky was blue, the air was autumn fresh and the equestrian’s adrenalin at Wills Park Equestrian Center was at an all-time high. Dressed in beige breeches, dark coats, and shiny boots, they all were mounted atop their meticulously groomed steeds. Spectators were able to see a pretty large variety of horses all the way from small, cuddly teddy bear-like ponies to beautiful gipsy vanners.

Riders and horses were waiting to enter the arena in order to show their hunter jumper skills from simply walking, trotting, cantering to jumping over obstacles. The ladies from Take Flight Academy were amongst these equestrians and they are a group of terrific girls who support and cheer for each other.

 It is always a privilege to be around these ladies and their horses since they greet you with a warm smile and a hug and, very patiently, answer every question I might have. The days are long but even the youngest of the bunch sit, watch and cheer until the sun goes down and the last girl has proven her skill in the arena.
