All in Personal & Opinion
What can I say? Food has accompanied me in a lot of strange situations and has been the catalyst in which I’ve made a fool of myself many times. I certainly have more than 5 stories, but I racked my brain for some of the more interesting ones and these are the ones my brain puked into my hands and translated into typed words on a screen. Enjoy.
A couple weeks ago, I got the opportunity to sit down with Tammy Hooker and Mary Jacobs who run the fantastic Plano Podcast. As you may have guessed, the show centers around Plano, Texas and the things that makes that city so damn special. Tammy was a fantastic host to converse with as was Mary who is the show’s producer.
Recently, I was reached out to by a website called NF Reads that interviews new authors. The site admin, Tony Eames, sent me an email with a list of questions for me to fill out and I had a blast doing it! Thanks for the exposure, Tony!
My wife and I recently finished watching Ricky Gervais’ new series, “After Life” on Netflix. The first season follows a journalist at a small, local paper played by Gervais who recently lost his wife to a battle with cancer. He spends most of the season being mean to others and moping around. If that sounds depressing, it’s because it is, but in this really beautiful way.
I wanted to write an article in-line with my novel’s release to serve as a companion piece to talk about some of the female explorers that inspired me as a writer and continue to inspire me in my writings.
An essay on what it means to love my wife. This was also what I read as my vows at our wedding.
Robber’s Cave has some really cool winding trails through giant rock cliffs and an amazing view from the top if you go in the fall, (like Tiff and I did). It’s located in the scenic, hilly woodlands of the Sans Bois Mountains of southeast Oklahoma and just might be among my favorite camping grounds within 4 hours of Dallas, Texas.
Happy Halloween! This project was created out of my love for creepy, creative videos around YouTube and elsewhere. Here I showcase a remix of some of my favorite videos mixed with my own. This is an ode to expressive, horror art in digital form.
Today, I’m posting part two of a photo essay project I began not to long ago. This particular essay focuses on a parking lot that I have numerous memories attached to.
The past couple weeks I’ve been planning to make a rap song for my friend Neil, but I got hurt skating and then it kept raining and it seemed like it would never get done. I recorded the song last week, but there was still a video to be made. Get ready to see a half-assed production for a non-half-assed friendship. Happy Birthday, Neil!
The first essay in my series: this focuses on a wooded area I grew up in. It shaped at least a small portion of my creativity. There will never be another space like it.
