15 Years In the ATL

Fifteen years ago today I arrived in Atlanta after a two day trek from Suburban San Francisco with all of my worldly belongings in the trunk of my Honda Civic. When I finally made it to the Budgetel in Buckhead I had a hard time figuring out while every TV station was showing the same footage of a slow speed car chase, but I was used to strange things after my time in California.

My sincere thanks to the many friends, neighbors and colleagues who helped me make a home in this amazing city. The pollen is tough and the sewers smell a little, but I would not want to be anywhere else.

Special thanks to Alan Gurley, Delta Airlines, Betsy Butler, Steve and team Olive Bistro, Georgia State University, the Fox Theater staff, Buford Highway, Gavin McCalla, Aurora Coffee, Hitesh Shah, Col. Bruce Hampton, Billy Payne, Marco’s Pita, Bob Schindelholz, Soul Vegetarian, and the Pothole Posse.
