Blind Audition

Los Angeles in the Wintertime

Hello again! Strange news, I've auditioned for The Voice. It's a television show on NBC. You may not have a TV set. That's ok. You could call up a friend or head to your local pub and ask them nicely to change the soccer tourney to The Voice - which is a television show on NBC. It premieres Monda...

Autumn in and out of Traverse City

Fall is finally here and I'm in Los Angeles missing the best of Northern Michigan. Oh well, the sushi is damn good out here. I hope your summer was full of wonderful things!
