Happy Lundi Gras, y’all!

With so many people traveling to New Orleans to see the majestic city at its finest this Mardi Gras season, I’d like to put forth my two cents of travel advice as a NOLA native. If any of…

“How’s ya momma and ‘dem?” – Travel Writing for (some of) NOLA’s Local Culture

By on February 13, 2014

A month ago, on a whim, I replied to a random Craigslist ad that was seeking travel writers. And since Craigslist is always a coin toss, I was pleasantly surprised shortly after to be…

In Defense Of The Great Grammy Heist: Why Hip-Hop Isn’t Dead Because Macklemore And Ryan Lewis Won | Thought Catalog

By on January 31, 2014

Friends, poets, hip-hop heads, rappers, wordsmiths, and music lovers,

I just had my first article published on Thought Catalog. It’s about Macklemore and Ryan Lewis winning a couple of The GRAMMYs and why that happening isn’t the death knell for hip-hop and rap.

My thoughts and feelings on this whole subject were far more complex than I initially…

The Atlanta Kickstarter Gathering

By on December 11, 2013

While researching how to grow support organically for a crowdfunding campaign, I came up with this idea that’s (in my humble opinion) hinting at genius. I decided to take simple, digital cross-promotion one step further and to extend it into…

By on November 30, 2013

About a month ago, I was contracted by a trio of enterprising engineering students from Georgia Tech to turn a Kickstarter campaign for their fan-speed indicator device, The Acorn, into a funding triumph. So, I’ve spent that past month setting up and refining their Kickstarter page, establishing their presence through…

The Hybrid I Am

By on July 4, 2013

So when I first got published in the May edition of NATIVE, I rolled out with a one-two punch. In addition to writing an article about b-cycling with Keith Rawls, I also had the privilege of profiling the recent literary success of my good friend and fellow writer Kat Zhang….

Left, Right, Forward. Never Back.

By on July 3, 2013

I’ve always found myself intrigued by the stories and lives of others, so much so that people watching has become one of my favorite past-times. Luckily, as a writer, I have the ability to do more than creepily watch people from afar; I can chat with them about their…

Come Wannado with Me

By on July 2, 2013

If you currently live in/around Nashville — or plan to visit here anytime in your life — you should probably read this blog post. (I’m not going to demand it or anything, but it does involve FREE and USEFUL things.)

In between playing with poetics, I’ve been working as a…

    • 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
