  • Taking #improv classes with these kind and talented and hilarious folks has been so great and freeing over the past 8 weeks. Already looking forward to keeping the party going (and the family together) for the next level! #FAMu, #apples, #DadsGarage
  • Showed up way late to this #4thOfJuly party/family gathering at @dadsgarageatl, but still had a great time getting to actually blow up some shit in the name of Murica's b-day. Thanks for hosting and hanging, you beautiful people. I'll get there earlier next year!
  • So, last weekend, I had a great excuse to go explore another great American city courtesy of my dear homie Alfred's wedding. (Congrats, Coach, ya got yourself a good one, and glad I was able to celebrate with you, brothaman.) While not lookin' spiffy at the wedding, I got to hang out with the gracious and amazing Austin (who's now officially an award-winning #copywriter, y'all! #SoProud, #VSWuv) and his badass friends, as well as learn that #Chicago is actually really nice when it's not negative degrees outside. 
Enjoy some highlights of my bumbling around the third-largest city in this country (something else I just learned), which included trying three times to get some damn deep dish pizza and happening upon a Japanese cultural fest, a ginormous #PokemonGo gathering, Chance the Rapper, and yes, some snow even though it was June.
  • Oh, ya know, just some badass ladies being badasses on stage. @bleuxstockingssociety #Atlanta #LiveLit
  • I know I'm a day late here, but my dad doesn't do social media, so, ya know, potato potato. Anyway, in honor of Father's Day, here's one of pappy, literally one of the most dedicated, tenacious, and hard-working mofos I've ever known. But, he also knows how to laugh and cut loose, even (and especially) when life gets tough. For example, we have no idea who the guy pictured on the wall is. Dad just noticed him at the poboy shop that we stopped into one time when I was in town. He said, "Hey, that guy could be my grandpa! Let's take a picture with him!," and then laughed with his characteristic rasp. So I made him copy the pose, and damn, I guess I met my great-grandpa that day as well. Then he said, "Send it to ya momma so she knows what I'll look like in a few years." 😂
  • A brief, pictorial recap of my recent adventures to D.C. and Baltimore to see some of my besties. #MissYouGuys
