A Photo Diary of the Walmark Family Meeting John Mayer

It's not everyday you get to go to a John Mayer show, let alone head backstage to meet him. Last night, I did just that, but I was part of something so much bigger.

Ethan Walmark, of the 'Piano Man' fame, idolizes John Mayer and to see them meet was incredibly moving. I had a ball with the Walmark family and will treasure the night always. 

To try and write about the experience, truly wouldn't do it justice.  I'd rather you see some photos I snapped throughout because after all, a picture is worth a thousand words!

Autism, Acting, and Rock 'n' Roll!

Jamison Braly, a filmmaker shares here in this blog post about his experience directing a very inspirational music video.

I know almost nothing about autism.

I’m sure there are PSA's about it, and I am betting 20/20 or Dateline did a show about it, but I missed all of that data and am left with a vague knowledge of what autism really is.
