I am so bad at updating my website :(   I've slowly pulled away from social media this past year and it feels great. I was getting really burnt out on the whole "writer" thing and maintaining whatever online presence and I just decided to back off and recharge.  Oddly enough, people keep inviting me to speak at things and have beer with them, so I must be doing something right...I just don't know what.

Anyways, I had a blast at the Coast Guard Academy. That was an incredible and curious crowd of cadets. They had me on my toes with some amazing questions.

I had an amazing time at Salisbury College where I got to read to a wonderful crowd of students, and best of all, I got to see my buddy John who was my first poetry professor ever. Glad to see he is absolutely crushing life and is such an amazing teacher.

What else...well, I'll be going to New York City in two weeks again to read for the Headstrong Project's fundraiser again. I have so much fun there and love putting out a positive message to help raise money for PTSD research. It's such a great cause and really gives my life meaning and direction. 

And I get to do a speech at the Columbia Writer's Guild annual conference. That's going to be a blast. I met so many great people there last year. I can't wait to see them again and make some new friends.

Okay, that was my yearly update. See you in late 2016...just joking...maybe...we'll see...
