I know I’ve been quiet in internet- land lately, but I’ve been working hard on book 2 of the Dead Man Chronicles and it’s on the way!

A Special Thank You!

It may seem like a person who presents their thoughts and work to the world has an immeasurable amount of confidence and courage, but this isn’t true.

Author Q and A - The Dead Man Chronicles: Fear

The Dead Man Chronicles: Author Q and A

Just 2 days away from the official launch of my first novel! I’m excited and apprehensive, but that’s to be expected. I’ve spent the better part of this year writing, researching, reaching out to people, scheduling promos, all for this moment.


In this post I wanted to share some info on what my book is, how it came about, and why I’ve written it.

There is No Perfect | There is Only Finished

I’ve been a closet fiction writer for years. So closeted that I never considered myself a “real” writer even though the title is all over my website and marketing materials. To be fair, I’ve written a lot…Just look at this blog. But I have a lot of unfinished fiction work. Scribbled Ideas in countless notebooks. Short scripts that may or may not ever see the light of day. What has held me back all this time? Continue reading…

Memphis Movement: A Labor of Love

So you’ve probably seen my posts or ads about my documentary film Memphis Movement: Jookin’ the Urban Ballet this week. I’m really excited to finally be able to share it with the world. I started the project way back in 2009 as the honors thesis for my film degree, and have done a few updates since then. Some new footage, new interviews, etc. There was a period of pause while negotiating, and having issues with potential distribution methods, which really weighed on me as a filmmaker.  It’s truly been a labor of love for me getting this story out to you and the world.


Even if dance is not something that immediately interests you, I really encourage you to take some time out of your day this weekend to sit down and check it out in its entirety. It will expand your horizons, and you won’t regret it Continue reading…

Birthday Letter to a Younger Me

Significant times of the year always make me contemplative. I usually pour my thoughts into my personal journal which only myself and a few others have ever seen. But this year, as I approach a certain age, I decided I’d write something to myself at age 12. A summation of a few things I feel like I’ve learned. Some advice. A few promises I intend to keep. To Me. Continue reading…

Everything wrong with Starbucks

Everything Wrong with Starbucks

This may be off the beaten path of my usual posts but I’ve to get this off of my chest. I hate Starbucks! There I said it…Well obviously it’s not an “I hate it so much that I’d never go there”, type of hate.

I actually enjoyed that eggnog latte I’m holding in the picture …. I also enjoyed the free WI-Fi… and to put it out there, if Starbucks ever wanted to sponsor me…I’d sign. (just disregard that second sentence guys!)


I guess my hate is more of an “I hate it because I don’t understand it” type of hate. Like racism.

Yeah. I’m racist against Starbucks…

you know…I can hang out with it..but if my son ever brought one home to marry… I’d throw a fit

Gratitude Graphic

The POWER of Gratitude

I’m not going to get all preachy about Thanksgiving. Like all holiday’s its origin has its pros and cons and it’s “All in good Fun”. Hell, who doesn’t want a ton of good food and a day off? I do feel like it’s a perfect time to talk about the power of Gratitude though. Continue reading…

The law of the Struggle blog

The Law of the Struggle

I hate the saying “everything happens for a reason.” “Who’s reason?” and “How do you know this?” are my immediate thoughts. I don’t like to think that there is a “reason” behind every painful and unpleasant experience we face. But there is a law in this universe (like gravity) that no significant progress or growth comes without a little discomfort, a little struggle, and breaking through some resistance.  Continue reading…
