While skilled at making repairs, Tulsa Computer's techs prefer to focus on preventive maintenance. They help their customers backup data and guard against numerous computer issues: malware, viruses, spam, hackers, or an infestation of Tron characters. For added convenience, they can work on-location or over the internet via remote access.
Growing up, Che Graves always had a pencil in his hand. He's always been eager to express himself through art, and once he was old enough to trade his pencil for a camera, there was no turning back. Working as a photo-lab manager taught Che how to understand light and use it to his advantage, and though he shifted from film to digital photography, he still credits his stint in the lab with teaching him to paint with light. Today, he uses his creative drive and his technical know-how to shoot portraits that "are designed to bring out a personality that may be hidden by life," he says. Weddings, family portraits, and boudoir shoots compose a large portion of his portfolio, which also includes landscape and architectural photography. Silly or sensuous, warm or mysterious, every image Che crafts is intended to reveal the individual subject's beauty.
Evelyn Coons watched the images of dispossessed pets appear during the news segments on Hurricane Katrina. An animal lover her whole life, she couldn't look at the coverage and not help. She ventured to Second Chance At Love in California, a no-kill shelter that took in 30 dogs who had lost their homes in the hurricane. While volunteering there, she learned from the shelter's founder Cheri Lucas, a practitioner of the training methods developed by "The Dog Whisperer," Cesar Milan.
Now with her own training school, Evelyn continues teaching Milan's methods, helping clients to understand their dogs' innate desires to be well-mannered socialites who always hold their wine glass by the stem. Additional services include treadmill and park sessions to give energetic pooches a safe, structured exercise program. With a particular fondness for pit bulls, she and her husband also rehabilitate dogs rescued in the Tulsa area.
Though he played the guitar for years, Josiah Wiens found himself running up against stalled progress, anxiety over learning new material, and frustration with his lack of advancement. So he threw his ineffective practice philosophies aside and began to experiment with new learning techniques. Josiah eventually hit on a method that dispelled his anxiety while jump-starting his technical abilities and musical sensitivity. Now, he helps both beginners and more experienced players hung up on the same difficulties that plagued him by teaching classes that interweave functional mastery with theory, which deepens spontaneous musicality. He also ministers to the instruments themselves, fixing guitars that have played one too many solos or been given life by fell magic.

About 90% of Purple Glaze Studio’s ceramics and craft supplies come from local sources, reflecting a dedication to the community that undergirds the studio’s resolve to never become a franchise. Instead, the Oklahoma-oriented Purple Glaze Studio welcomes neighbors inside to paint hundreds of ceramic bowls, frames, and figurines created in the Tulsa area. Stencils, sponges, and stamps assist crafters as they paint their projects, and an idea center helps jumpstart flagging imaginations. The studio also invites guests to assemble bright tiles and stones into mosaics—a perfect activity for a girls’ night, a birthday party, or discovering that you’re actually colorblind.
