Blog Post #2: A House Full Of Love…

As a father and husband, I’m extremely proud of the work April and I have accomplished with our three sons, Ross, Royce and Joey. They’re kind, strong, nurturing young men. Over the years, we’ve done our best to include them in all we do. When April and I are invited to events, if the kids aren’t invited/allowed we usually don’t care to go. I get that some events are adult only, but generally speaking, I’d prefer spending time with my children than some of the adults at these events.

Blog Post #1: How It All Began!

I started blogging online more than seven years ago. I was looking for a way to reach an audience to build a following so that I could get back out on the road doing stand up comedy. No longer the twenty-something year old I used to be, I wasn’t willing to make outrageous videos pranking people or disrespecting myself to get attention. I struggled for a bit trying to find my way. As new platforms emerged and others found the grave, I was always encouraged by my wife, April. She just wanted me to hang in there. And keep trying. And hang in there I did. She encouraged me to try Facebook. I was reluctant at first, but gave it a shot. Started doing videos in the morning before work when I was employed as a writer on “Til Death”. I found in those early posts an audience waiting to connect with comics without the networks getting in the way. NBC, CBS, ABC, and the production companies and managers had put a bottleneck on the relationship between talent and consumers. But that was all about to change. And change it did.
