I am a management consultant/accountant by day.

I recently attended a masters program in Folklore at UNC. I am still working on my thesis on DC GoGo Music, You can help! If you are a GoGo fan, please contact me if you are willing to answer some questions.

I attended the 2003 Folklife Field School in Salisbury and Crisfield, MD. You can find articles on it by the AP and the Somerset Herald. Folklore has been a life-long pursuit of mine; I have been studying it in depth for eight years. I have previously worked both in the entertainment industry (as an accountant and in music licensing) and the healthcare industry (as an accountant). I have a Bachelors degree in Accounting from the University of Maryland and am a former CPA.

I have interned at Pandisc Music Corp. Subsequently, I worked for Rhino Entertainment (originally as an intern) and its sister company, Warner Special Products. A sampling of the projects I worked on at Rhino includes: Glory B Da’ Funk’s On Me: The Bootsy Collins Anthology, The Jam: The Larry Graham & Graham Central Station Anthology, Hotcakes & Outtakes: 30 Years Of Little Feat, Chitlin' Circuit Soul! The Best Of Today's Southern Blues, Nuggets II: Original Artyfacts From The British Empire & Beyond, and Rhapsodies In Black: Music And Words From The Harlem Renaissance.

This website is a constant work-in-progress, as my skills and knowledge expand, so does this site. My primary interests are Folklore, Funk & Funky Jazz, Blaxploitation movies, and African-American studies. This site is devoted to those interests.

College Athletics - A Myth?

My two favorite team sports are men's college basketball and college football. These sports are big revenue generators. I have heard through the news and word of mouth of how many of the "student-athletes" are not really students, which is unfortunate. Therefore many sports "talking heads" have suggested ending the myth, and just making the athletes professionals (and not students at all). However, personally I think if the myth were ended, I and many others would not be as big fans of college athletics, as they would not be much different from their (already-existing) professional equivalents. Therefore, I say, keep the myth!
