We had the good fortune of connecting with Nuri Parker and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nuri, what do you think makes you most happy? Why?
What makes me happy is having the ability to live spontaneously. To have the opportunities presented and being able to fulfil those as well as any goal i make for myself ,truly makes me happy. Besides that music is my main source of happiness. Followed by laughter and good times in general,
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I consider myself an artist because I’m a master of all trades. Everything I do I master & Everything I touch is gold. There’s nothing I cant do. I believe if there’s a will there’s a way. I started off with Cosmetology’ I’m a full specialist and colorist. I ventured into Fashion and Design college and even designed and sewed my own clothing line. I have a passion for anything to do with music I live by the term “Music saved my life” because when all else fails for me that’s really what I fall on. I can sing, dance, write music & I even took up djing (love that the most!). Besides my major careers/hobbies I’m a very artistic person all around, I’m extremely creative like my brain is an endless pit of ideas and my imagination is insane.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Ooooo! don’t get me started cause I can go all night long! First let me start off by saying Houston is the spot for all spots! We have Heart Tuesday’s, Cleo Sunday’s, Rose Gold Saturday’s & Spire Fridays! From the bangin food to the poppin music and don’t get me started on how fine all the servers/bartenders are! lol I would definitely take anyone to anyone of those spots if they’re looking to have the time of their life!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Honestly ima sound crazy, but my shout out goes to Young Thug, one day I wanted to give up like I was over it & “Digits” came on and he said “Horses don’t stop they keep going, you can lose your life but its gone keep goooooing” & literally anytime i feel weak or like giving up i repeat that to myself lol.
