Hello friends and acquaintances! Since you’ve taken the time to visit my humble blog, I feel it is only fair to give you a more in-depth look at the man behind the words.
While convention says not to judge a book by its cover, I’ve included this photo because, well, you can judge this book by its cover.
Yes, that is a Metallica shirt.
Yes, that is an EMG pickups hat.
I love music of all sorts, but I am undoubtedly a “metalhead,” and music plays a huge part in my life.
I oftentimes post instructional videos to YouTube for those interested in playing the guitar, and I also love learning and experimenting with the latest and greatest gear for the craft.
What that photo does not explicitly tell you, however, is that I am a student at West Virginia University where I am majoring in print journalism.
Currently, I am a featured columnist at Bleacher Report, where I ramble about all things MMA.
In addition to this, I am the editor for the Arts & Entertainment section of our school’s newspaper, The Daily Athenaeum.
Apart from writing and music, I am an avid sports fan with particular interests in mixed martial arts and professional basketball and football, so feel free to chat me up on any of those topics as well.
That pretty well sums up the vital information you cannot find on my driver’s license, so without further ranting, enjoy the blog, and feel free to contact me with any questions, criticisms or random comments of your own.
