I have no musical talents (that I know of) but in exchange, I received a rational set of ears that audibly visualize the numerous soundscapes around me.
To say, “I love music,” says nothing. I have favorites and I have worsts. I love and I hate, but most importantly, I engage. Every piece of art has a history, an underlying message, and I listen so I can discover.
Each genre brings with it its own concept of life. Artists, whether male or female, Christian or Atheist, black or white, in love or heartbroken, bring their experiences into song. It’s a simple way of uniting the world.
This blog is a release valve so that I can make everything I hear relevant, if only to myself.
I hope you enjoy, and feel free to let me know if my opinion is in or out of sync with yours.
“Music is, to me, proof of the existence of God. It is so extraordinarily full of magic, and in tough times of my life I can listen to music and it makes such a difference.”
Though my passion is sports and music writing, I write for a travel club called Global Connections Inc. and maintain social media for its various companies.
You can see my past work in my portfolio.
Previously, I freelanced for various newspapers, covering mostly high school events in the Kansas City area. I also contributed to a music blog, hearhearmusic.com. I’ve covered the Kansas men’s basketball team for The University Daily Kansan, the student newspaper at the University of Kansas, where I was also sports editor and a copy editor.
