My personal life.

Eve of SXSW Interactive

SXSW Interactive

I’m super excited. I just got an email from SXSW letting me know that I could go pick up my badge this afternoon. I taken the time to try and plan my first SXSW experience as carefully as possible. I will be attending not only to personally experience, learn, and develop my skills and networks, but I will also be working. We will be covering different angles of our experiences at the festival through video, photos, and writing about the experience for our websites. This will definitely be my first time sharing and writing for such an audience, but I’ll gladly take the opportunity.

You can check out my full schedule here. I am not finished, and will be editing it as I go. There are many times that I have purposely overbooked myself for times. There’s a lot of panels and events to check out, but I’m not experienced enough to navigate the different venues quickly enough. So we’ll see what I’ll make.

I will have never tried so many new things in a short amount of time. Good times.

I will be tweeting throughout the next few days of the festival, and I will also be trying out Gowalla and Foursquare.

Site launch for WilCoYA


My month of February was consumed with a lot of work in different ministries at St William’s in Round Rock, and a new Young Adult ministry. We millennials are good at finding others with similar interest, and most important, at creating our own group whenever we see a gap for our specific needs. In January of this year, we had our first real gathering as an organization, and I was very pleased to see that it was a success. There is a strong hunger among the young adults of this community to find support and community with others like us. I feel that this group could grow to be really strong and benefit all of us that join. I helped create a new platform for us to share and learn at our new blog. Check it out.

A New Start


After a few years of not blogging, I have decided to return. It was around the time that I created the SoulPainter identity that I stopped blogging, now it has come for the brand to include more personality. There will be times that I may offend some people, but it is not my intention. I only know how to be myself, and that is all I will be. As always, I will be in pursuit of Truth in our lives. I will seek 2 love in all that I do.
