Cassie’s Going Away Party

Cassie’s Going Away Party

April 10, 2015 This week, I joined a group of students and friends to give Cassie a supportive send-off. Soon, she’ll be leaving Aggieland for LaLaLand…Los Angeles to begin a job in the industry as an editor. Cassie was one of my production graduate assistants for three years. She was one of the best and a lot of fun to work with on photography projects. I know we’ll keep-in-touch, and... [Read more]


Palm Sunday and Easter 2015

Palm Sunday and Easter 2015

April 5, 2015 This Easter, I attend the early service at my church before heading to central Texas to spend the rest of the day with family. The service was extra special because it featured our new bell choir. After the service, I drove straight to my parents’ house where the entire family gathered to eat, visit, and hunt eggs. It’s a tradition that everyone (adults included) take part in the... [Read more]

For this show, I submitted two photographic projects: Submission: “Picture Day” Be a big boy. Don’t you dare cry. Early in life we are taught to mask our pain, and cover up our true... [Read more]

April 1, 2015 My friend Michael Jackson and his team at Cushing Library unveiled the acquisition of the Don Kelly Research Collection of Gay Literature and Cultural. I know Michael has put a lot of work into this collection. It is thoughtfully displayed along with artifacts of A&M’s GLBT history in the Wendler Exhibit Gallery located on the second floor of Cushing Library. #gallery-4... [Read more]

Museum of the American GI 2015

March 29, 2015 Anyone within driving distance of Aggieland should attend the Museum of the American GI’s battle reenactments. They are spectacular events made possible by people who are passionate about preserving and sharing this pivotal moment in world history. Saturday afternoon, Glenn, his brother, sister-in-law, niece, nephew and I attended the largest military vehicle rally and battle reenactment... [Read more]


New York 2015

New York 2015

March 18-23 Now that Ruben is working full-time (no longer a graduate student), we can finally start traveling! During the week of spring break, we flew to New York City. While most folk headed South, we took advantage of cheaper rates by heading North. On our first full-day in NYC, we got up really early to take the 1 train to the South Ferry station. As soon as we arrived, we went straight to... [Read more]


St. Patrick’s Day 2015

St. Patrick’s Day 2015

March 17, 2015 Poor Ruben had to work on St. Patrick’s Day, so he couldn’t join in on the fun this year. Glen joined me at O’Bannon’s to listen to some Irish tunes, eat some Irish food, have a couple of drinks and people watch. #gallery-7 { margin: auto; } #gallery-7 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-7... [Read more]


PechaKucha

PechaKucha

March 10, 2015 This month, I was invited to present at the second Downtown Bryan PechaKucha event. It was an honor to be invited and a challenge. PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format. The images advance automatically every 20 seconds and each presenter talks along to the images. The presentation format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture. The... [Read more]


Live Long and Prosper

Live Long and Prosper

February 27, 2015 Unlike other celebrity deaths reported in the media, the news of Leonard Nimoy’s passing made my heart sink. I’m a geek and I’ll gladly admit that Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future (Star Trek) has had a significant impact on my life. Leonard Nimoy did more than portray Spock, he respected it, the fans and the vision Roddenberry shared of a better tomorrow –... [Read more]
