i’m noticing more people are starting to take a look at the about section of to take the train. this might be a good time to go ahead and give you a few details about my life. i graduated from the university of georgia in 2003 and moved back to my hometown of nashville to be in the music business. i worked at a record label for 4 years before i jumped ship and went to work for a marketing company that focused on creating online brands for entertainment clients. during that time i had the pleasure of working with kanye west for a year of my life. he wanted us to build him a blog and since i didn’t know what a blog was at the time i joined wordpress and started one to see what kind of functionality he needed. i ran my blog for 4 years and built somewhat of a following. as i’ve grown older, my interests have changed so i abandoned that blog and started to take the train. i hope you like it.

*ps here’s the only picture i have with kanye. this is from our first meeting. he and his manager, don c, are telling me what they want the website/blog to look like. i was a little apprehensive about sharing this pic but it’s too good not to.
