One-Person | Listening Tour

Let’s just get this out-of-the-way:  regardless of your political affiliation, the 2016 U.S. presidential election was ugly.  I’m all for being scrappy, but not in the traditional Webster’s dictionary sense.  I am all about being scrappy in the sense of being the underdog and working to achieve success.  That’s what I expect out of myself…

Post-Internet Era | Part 1

A lot has been written about Net Neutrality since Tom Wheeler, who headed the FCC under President Obama’s administration, reversed his original decision to reduce neutrality due to public outcry. Now, Ajit Pai, President Trump’s FCC chief, has ended net neutrality as we know it. Or has he? In a series of articles, we’ll examine:…

Now | 2018

I first came across Derik Sivers Now concept at the end of 2016.  One of the things I love about his concept is that it’s forward-looking.  I’m a person who learns what I can from the past and then I continue to move forward.  Dwelling on things and people who “could’ve” or “should’ve” is not in my…

It’s a cold winters day.  The perfect time to take a look back on a year.  More importantly, it’s time to look forward to next year with family and friends.  Happy New Year!  

Job Interviews | Winning

Aspen Trees | Life

Aspen trees are beautiful. But there’s much more happening underground with them that leads to their remarkable life. One of the unusual things about Aspen trees is that the “tree” part that we view is actually equivalent to an air root.  Simply put, the actual tree lives underground and what we normally think of as a…

During our show, our audience becomes the show…

Gothic Girl Art Magazine

New Gardening Magazine

Following our 4,500 mile road trip from Detroit to Mukuntuweap National Monument in Utah, Susan and I had decided:  it was time to combine our love for gardens, art, and travel into a new magazine. Our conversation had started during the shoot for the 2017 October issue of Gothic Girl Art Magazine, which is set in Susan’s…

Steampunk Art Magazine

H.R. Giger | Steampunk Art Magazine

Back in 2015 I launched a magazine with some friends to look at the genre of Steampunk from an avant garde perspective–particularly from the unorthodox niche encompassed in the phrase avant garde. And then I did nothing with what became Steampunk Art Magazine for two years.  During that time, all my efforts in the Steampunk…
