Welcome! I've been on the Internet for many a' year now...there was a time I blogged about things, but then the time of no-blogging-because-I-didn't-feel-like-it arrived.

Recently, though, I decided that the time has come to blog again! That brings us to today.

I plan to use this blog to talk a bit about my life, and the things I find interesting in it. There'll be photos, videos, and paraphernalia documenting the ins-and-outs-and-what-have-you's of my daily life. In addition, I expect to do some writing about the things that interest me, whether it be video games, movies, music, culture, food, board games, books, and more. I'm not much into politics (which is surprising, being as I worked for years as a politically-focused news reporter...*cough*)

April 2012 finds me in one of the best places I've ever been, career-wise. I am currently working as a Community Specialist with Turbine, Inc./WB Games, with a focus on the Massively Multiplayer Online game Dungeons & Dragons Online. I also do a bit of work on other various WB Games projects. If you see the name Cordovan, there's a pretty good chance it's me.

Those who have known me for a while will know that I spent almost 15 years working in news and radio. I can't say that I'll never return to that field of work, but for now at least, working for a news wire or as a reporter is of little interest to me. Radio was super-fun, but the pay just wasn't there. I find Internet-based media like podcasting and video-casting to be the future. I'm a DIY kind of guy, and I think the future of media is largely DIY!

The other great thing that has happened to me is the birth of my first son. Jeffrey Snook was born on October 9th, 2011 to myself and my wife Sarah. He's doing great! Being a father does change you. It makes you more tired, at the very least...he's a great kid, though, and I love him very much.

At some point I will put up a more formalized web site for myself, but for now, here's a bunch of relevant links, if you'd like to see more of my life:

Thanks for visiting, and I look forward to kicking off this blog.

There are far too few pics of me that I like, this one from the mid-2000's is one of them...
