After years of working at my favorite sites (JoBlo and Arrow in the Head), I discovered another groovy place to go for movies.  It was thanks to meeting Mr. Chase Whale about a year ago, and keeping in touch that lead me to Gordon and the Whale. And for awhile, I had the opportunity to do a little bit of work for the site, along with my regular gigs. Ironically, my last official job with Gordon and the Whale was the junket for Focus Features' THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT.

Ironic?  Why is that?  Well, because as I mentioned, this is my last assignment with this wonderful website.  I had an amazing opportunity, but I feel like my work with Chase, JoBlo, and Arrow introduced me to a whole new family, something I'd never had before, much like the unlikely family that appears in KIDS. And just like that family, there is a whole lot of love and memories.

Nowadays you will find me as the new Editor in Chief for iamROGUE.com.  It is a wonderful place for me to take all I've learned and place it into a new home and let that grow. And thanks to a man I'm not afraid to say "I love you" to, Chase Whale is sharing these interviews with iamROGUE and creating an even bigger bond. Thank you to everyone at GATW for having me on board. While it was a short time, I was proud to be a part of the family. And I'm also proud to offer you an up close and personal look at some of the fine folk behind THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT.
