I'm a television host. I'm a content creator. I also happen to be a journalist. But it all started with my work in graphic design. My serpentine logo has been with me since 2008, originally created in PowerPoint and Ulead GIF Animator--yes, prehistoric--and updated in Adobe Illustrator as a class assignment in 2013. Using the … Continue reading New City, New Branding!
My portfolio page for BRCC Today, the public access talk show for Baton Rouge Community College. 'BRCC Today' airs Fridays at 5pm on Metro21 (Cox Cable) in Baton Rouge, LA.
This entry is written in response to the article “Why I Love Baton Rouge” by NOLA.com writer Kiri Walton. I came across it at 2:30 this morning while designing graphics for a local production company. The article hit home not only because of the title and content, but because of Ms. Walton’s background; she moved … Continue reading Why I Also Love Baton Rouge
Right on time with my seventh Shuttle launch, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity opened in theaters. Any true spaceflight and astronomy aficionado like me would normally have a huge beef with Hollywood-tainted space flicks—the launch sequence in Armageddon would have one of us ready to take a Louisville Slugger to the screen.

"Bqhatevwr." That's become an internet meme ever since former Massachusetts senator Scott Brown posted this drunken tweet. It's also how I'll describe my day thus far as well as today's episode of Bold and the Beautiful, both as a positive and regative connotation respectively. As I tweeted earlier, today's show consisted of five Muppet Babies … Continue reading “The Bold and the Beautiful” — bqhatevwr
Yeah, I've been busy with little to talk about just the same. The Olympics have wrapped up, and I decided to correct the mistake I made in high school--I'm going to join a local track club. When? Not really sure, but soon. I still don't have much to say, but I have many new songs and … Continue reading Long Time, No Post!
'Cause I'm a MacBook Pro with a MacBook Pro!'.
FINALLY, I have a Mac! I got one second-hand on Amazon (special shoutout to backplant from the NJ/NYC area--thank you very kindly) for about $850, and it is 100% worth it. I've had it around the time of my birthday at the end of June, but I have been preoccupied with either work or relaxing … Continue reading ‘Cause I’m a MacBook Pro with a MacBook Pro!’
I guess this is my first official blog post on WordPress.com! This website and blog is a work in progress (story of my life!) and I really hope that I can build up some kind of base. I plan to use this to elaborate on my projects as well as an outlet to vent, but to also … Continue reading Hello, World!
