New Website

Thanks to Kristin Rogers Brown and Brandon Sorg, I now have a content manageable website! Kristin is an Art Director, Designer, and Educator based in Portland, and Brandon a technical wizard who is just starting his own print shop. Somehow they managed to make the process of creating a website an enjoyable experience.


When Kathy Conarro, Art Director for the Colorado Springs Independent, calls, I usually know that I am in for a bizarre and enjoyable assignment. This cover story was related to the subject of FONG’s (Fat Old Naked Guys), and how they have a tendency in certain Colorado Springs health clubs to lounge around the locker room in their birthday suits, engaging in everyday leisure activities, unaware of the emotional distress they are causing other, more fitness-focused, members. I imagine a thorough amount of investigative reporting must have been required.
