History Happy Hour with Professor Tric

On September 7th, I had the pleasure of presenting a lecture at Tenacity Brewing in Flint, Michigan as part of the History Happy Hour.

 History Happy Hour is an informative lecture series created by the Whaley Historic House. The Whaley is an amazing house turned museum that does a lot to keep the history of Flint alive. History Happy Hour allows historians at all levels to enjoy local Michigan historical topics while drinking their favorite beverages.

My presentation focused on the origin of an American West Icon, the Lone Ranger, and his little known Michigan origins. 

I'm looking forward to presenting more lectures at historical events in the Michigan area and working more with the Whaley Historic House.

Sunrise 45 Film Festival

The film I wrote, UFO: The Otis Files, was shown at the Sunrise 45 Film Festival in Alpena, MI. This was my first film festival and it was a blast! I got to see some amazing independent films and got to do some great networking. Also, it was great hanging out with the film's lead actress, Krissi Kinney and director Warren Jackson. 

One of the best things about attending the film festival was getting to talk with other filmmakers. Warren, Krissi, our associate Steve, and I were offered to take part in an international indie film project that we'll be filming at the end of September. The Sunrise 45 Film Festival was an amazing experience and I can't wait to be there next year as well.
