I started blogging in the early 2000s when that was barely even a thing. Everything I’ve ever personally blogged is archived on this site. There’s a LOT. It comes mostly from my father, who was an English teacher and journalist. I went to J-school at the University of Houston, but immediately landed in other jobs that took me away from writing. The blog was that outlet until I found out someone would pay me for it.
Since 2008, my second job (I’m fond of saying I only take on hobbies that pay me) has been writing. I’ve been fortunate enough to write for a number of publications including the Houston Chronicle (where I had a blog on the music business for several years), the Houston Press, Houstonia Magazine, US Weekly and numerous custom publications from the Galveston Visitors’ Guide to the Remax Magazine.
In 2017, I was thrilled to co-author the official 50th anniversary book for the Houston Rockets. As a lifelong Rockets diehard, it was a bit of a dream come true. I’ve been fortunate to cover them and shoot and interview many of the players and staff over the years.
