Oh Shit!

You want to know about me? Here are some things I post about, in giant click inducing hero block marketing format!

Animated GIFs

I went through a phase where I was too excited about creating animated gifs.

Bands and Shows

My dad made me classic rock and top 40 mixtapes when I was a little kid, which got me into making my own by recording the radio. I'm glad he planted that love of music into me early. Discovering hip hop later made it solid. I wish I could go to more shows. Sometimes I document them here.

Brittany is Behind This

My wife Brittany is the creative half that I strive to be. With her design, marketing, and branding skills we are like a mini corporation with all departments of a regular business covered.

Coding

I'm a hack ass coder that knows somewhere between enough to be dangerous and enough to write fully custom retail and accounting systems with asp.net, C#, SQL Server, etc. I'm even more of a hack when you take it to the front end with JavaScript and HTML. Sometimes I nerd out and write about it here.

Comedy

I wish I was funny. Sometimes I try too hard. You'll see if you read here.

Failures

I'm trying to get over my fear of failure because I know failing a lot and often is the way to get to a good learning point in not just your work, but in your life. So, what better way to get over that fear than by publicly listing failures? A lot of these end up here more due to being lazy and unmotivated, but I figure shouting them out to the Internet will help me combat that, too. If you got here and there's no list, damn, that's a failure right there. Fuck. Someday.

I Art Myself

I Art Myself is some silly crap I started as a joke with my horrible drawing skills and making a mockery of the egos of many artists that are out there. The joke turned way serious once I discovered how awesome I am. Your broke ass is a starving artist. I have coined the term 'relaxing artst.' My natural ability is certainly no struggle. Since that point, the flow of talent shoots from my fingertips like that bad guy in Star Wars that almost killed Luke. I radiate works of amazement like you see below as often as I can. You're welcome.

Music

I've listened to hip hop for as long as I can remember, back to Cool Mo Dee and KRS1's early days. I think it all started when I first heard a kid wth a boom box running Newcleus. It wasn't long before I had that album on rotation. Anyway, I have lyrics memorized spanning three decades of rap. Get it out of me with a few beers and an intense social situation where I'm feeling comfortable.

I'm In!

Party Photos

I'm that guy with the flash in your face, embarassing you the next day on the Internet with a forever documentation of what went down so we can laugh about it for the rest of our lives.

I'm In!

Photography

I'm not sure if I like photography more for the gadgets involved or for the act of photography itself. I take a lot of pictures.

I'm In!

Random

Sometime shit gets weird.

I'm In!

Rants

I'm a fairly chill ass non-serious type, but every now and then I go full Negative Nancy with a rant that usually involves lots of sarcasm and intent to entertain by jokes and purposefully extreme viewpoints.

I'm In!

Skateboarding

I've been skateboarding my whole life and it shows in everything I do through my outlook and attitude towards things. I can't thank that stupid piece of wood and wheels and the culture that comes with it enough. It has made me who I am.

I'm In!

Social Networks

I try every social network that comes out at least once. It's the exact opposite of how I eat.

I'm In!

Tampa Photography

Tampa's where I live. I like to take photos. So, here you go.

I'm In!

Taxes

I was once a CPA and a CMA. That stands for Certified Public Accountant and Certified Management Accountant. I still straight up LOL when I think about how I did that stuff. I lasted two years at an accounting firm then had to leave accounting behind. I still harbor tax and other knowledge I sometimes spill here.

I'm In!

Travel

I'm lucky enough to travel for both work and pleasure. That combined with my desire to document everything and you end up with this list here.

Untacky Marketing

In skateboarding, there's the term "super ams" to indicate ams that are nearly pro or may as well be pro. In photography, there's the term "prosumer" for people who buy high end camera shit but are still amateur or hobby level. I'd like to think I'm in the same category when it comes to marketing principles. I'm always analyzing how various businesses conduct themselves when trying to pitch their product. Sometimes I'll write about it.

I'm In!

Videos

I film a lot with my phone, generally for the purposes of comedy.

I'm In!

Work

I'm lucky enough to work in skateboading where I can put to use all the skills like programming and accounting that I've somehow managed to accumulate.

I'm In!

Writing

I wish I could really write. Instead I just sort of type what I'm thinking. One of these days I'll get better at the written word. Thanks for reading some babble and ranting.
