Cushioned.

July 11, 2015

❝I was born in Dixie in a boomer’s shack,
Just a little shanty by the railroad track,
The humming of the drivers was my lullaby
And a freight train whistle taught me how to cry.❞ —Roy Acuff.

The Crux of the Matter.

July 11, 2015

In our new rental home, we’re finally on the other side of the tracks.

Expect lots of train-related photos here until, well, I reach the end of the line.

An Interview with Dr. Ben Carson on Education (6 of 6)

June 29, 2015

(This is my colleague, James Barham, and me. I’m in the middle of asking some rambling question and clearly looking like a fanboy.)

Last month, my employer (TheBestSchools.org) had a last-minute opportunity to interview presidential hopeful, Ben Carson, M.D. As president and cofounder of the Carson Scholars Fund, he had a perspective we wanted to hear, and his advocacy for education is legendary.

I was tasked with filming the interview and would even have the opportunity to ask a question or two, myself. Yay!

What ensued was a comedy of mishaps—which I am told is typical with nearly any field shoot, especially with borrowed gear, a hastily-assembled team, and barely a week to prepare. First, we were led to a room super-saturated in orange due to sunlight bouncing off a stadium of day-glo-painted seats straight into our skybox. Then we had a ridiculously noisy A/C blower permanent set to “11.” We had power issues, until we realized the room’s power had to enabled remotely. We had mic issues. Only, we really didn’t really have mic issues. Turned out our digital audio recorder was fried—and we didn’t know it till we checked the “tape” afterward.

Somehow, we survived with aplomb and salvaged the interview using the onboard audio from the video cameras. (Note to self: air conditioners are fine, but OMG, the noise!) I even got to ask a couple off-the-cuff questions and they were deemed acceptable.

That day I learned that Dr. Carson is a prince of a man. Whatever you think of his politics, he’s smart, humble, and gracious. Our country would be well-served with more men and women like him to serve as inspirational examples.

Check out the full interview here:

An Interview with Dr. Ben Carson on Education (5 of 6)

June 29, 2015

(This genuine laugh, I’m proud to say, came during Dr. Carson’s answer to my question. He was recounting something funny President George Bush said.)
