Interview 6 – Granison Crawford

Wanted to introduce you this week to actor and comedian and a dear acquaintance of mine Granison Crawford. I had the opportunity to direct Granison in a very sweet and poignant short film I wrote called The Purpose of Apples. When he isn't acting he is doing stand up comedy - and he took a moment away from his routine to stop by and talk with us. 1. Tell me a little about Granison Crawford, the stand-up comedian? I was adopted, or as I like to call it, “chosen” at five years old, and raised with my sister by a single mom in Oakland California.

Interview 1 – Barbara Spoor

So here at Mimosas with Michael, we wanted to do something new and different. We thought it would be neat to include online articles and interviews of people who have fun and exciting ventures going on - and that we could share with our audience. We decided to launch our first interview with Barbara Spoor, who at the age of 25 walked off her job to follow her passion...and started a blog in the process. 1. First off, I’d like to ask what inspired you to start your blog ‘I Quit My Job at 25’ Writing has always been a big passion of mine. The week of my 25th birthday, I was going through a really big shift in how I was thinking about the life I was living. It's funny, because there was absolutely nothing wrong with my life coming from a logical stand point. I had a great job with a Major Hol...

Episode 5 – Matthew R. Fleming

Michael sits and has a mimosa with horror author Matthew R. Fleming, who has self-published his first novel The Dreams. Synopsis: Waking up in an unknown forest with four strangers, James has an unsettling feeling that the group is not alone. As tension mounts and he finds himself questioning the motives and loyalty of his companions, one of the group members disappears, leaving only a pool of blood behind.

This fascination drove me to the film ‘An American Werewolf in London’ At the wide-eyed age of 8, I stared at that hairy, magnificent, werewolf in wonderment. From that moment I was hooked to movies. While embarking upon my journey to watch as many movies as I could I realized a couple of things along the way: Sound is major, but only as much as music.  Sound has been a big part of my life, since I was a kid. Whether it be watching Spielbe...
