Great Blue Heron. Photo taken in Cumming, GA. I'm kind of proud of this, I was a couple hundred yards away with a telephoto zoom lens, camera using manual settings and manual focus, I felt like a king when I got this shot.

Yo! My name is Michael and I like to think I'm pretty awesome.

Here's a bit about me: I'm 23 years old. I work as a professional portrait photographer, which can be either a great job or an awful one depending on the day (since I get paid on commission). In what little spare time I have, I really love hanging out with my gorgeous girlfriend/soon-to-be-fiancee/later-to-be-wife. I also love making art using whatever medium I have on hand. I prefer pen and ink drawing or digital media, but I dabble in just about everything. I'm a writer first and foremost, and I love writing fiction: anything from sci-fi, fantasy, romance, action, westerns, you name it. One of my favorite hobbies is reading comic books, and I've always had a dream of writing my own. Recently I've taken steps toward making that dream a reality, as I've started my own webcomic called UPWORLDER. It's a fantasy/action story about... well, you'll just have to read it to see what it's about! Check it out here on my deviantArt or on my brand spanking new website!
I also love music. I've sung and played guitar and bass in bands at school and church, and I've also written some music myself. One of these days, I'm going to become a rockstar, just you wait!

Me at a glance:

Mediums: Photography, Digital Media (Photoshop CS3, Autodesk Sketchbook Pro), Pen and Ink, and whatever else I can get my hands on

It's been far too long.

Life has been crazy for the past several months. Since the last time I was on here, I've had a lot of life changes: quit college, traveled (A LOT!!!) as a portrait photographer, changed positions into marketing, traveled (a little less, but still A LOT!!!) as a marketing manager, got engaged (back in June), had another birthday (those things have a way of sneaking up on you way too often!) and now I'm about to get married just two months from today. I've had so much going on, I honestly forgot that DeviantArt existed for a while there. 

So now, I'm back. For now, anyway. 

I can't say for sure that I'll be back very often. I find it very hard to get back into things after being away for a while (just ask my Minecraft account), but I really enjoy my time on DeviantArt talking to the people I've met on here and sharing my art. I've started using Instagram a lot, since it's a bit easier to use on a cell phone, and I don't really spend as much time in front of my computer as I used to so my phone is my main method of communication these days. I mean, when you're on the road for at least 7-8 hours each day, it's kind of hard to find time and WiFi. So for now, I'll be uploading a bunch of pictures from Instagram that I've taken during my travels, and probably some more that didn't make the cut. 

Anyway, I guess this is just a note to catch everyone up on "what's going on in Michael's life" right now. Unfortunately, my comic (Upworlder) has been put on indefinite hold, since I just really don't have the time and energy to be writing and drawing new pages right now. I want to come back to it eventually, if/when things ever settle down, and I still have all my notes about the overarching story I want to tell with it, but I just can't commit the time with my current crazy busy schedule. 

Being an adult is harder than they make it sound when you're growing up. The most annoying aspect is that there are only so many hours in a day to get things done. By the time I'm done with work, I'm too tired to do very much besides play a video game or read a book or something. I've been reading books on how to play chess, and I'm still terrible at it because I don't get to play very often. I write ideas for stories, and never finish them. I come up with a chorus for a song, then never write the verses. It's like life has turned into a constant struggle to find more time, when in reality there just isn't any more time to be found. 

Oh, and I'm engaged. So there's the fiance, which takes more time. I mean, it's definitely a great thing, and I enjoy spending as much time with her as possible. But it does take away from the time I might have had to do other things like finish writing a story or a song, or draw a comic page. 

So I guess all of this is just my way of letting everyone know, I'm back on DeviantArt with a few minutes that I have right now, and I hope I'll get a few more minutes here and there so I can keep posting my stuff and talking to people on here. 

Honestly I'm at a loss for words right now. I can't even remember how to write a blog post without sounding like a raving lunatic. Whatever.
