I started recording on my phone in Wendy’s drive through one day. I was just trying to get my thoughts out as a sort of therapy. I turned that recording into a podcast.

I started the chiropractic program at Life University around the same time I found the doctor of traditional Chinese medicine who finally brought me back to health.

Bryan Keith

“I’ve always been fascinated with photography for as long as I remember!” While this sounds great, it’s not true for me. My story is different from most photographers because until recently, music production was my only outlet for artistic expression. When other photographers were scouting new locations, I was in the studio searching for the perfect snare sample. Photography just wasn’t my thing. At least, not yet! Read more>>

Katherine Gross

In my final years of high school, I was dead set on opening up my own coffee shop and nothing could stray me from that path.

I could be telling a joke, dancing, or doing an impersonation of a cartoon character. Read more>>
