It’s All About You

It’s been an amazing year for Beyond Bourbon Street.  We’ve gone from launch to building an awesome community of people who love New Orleans.  I’ve gotten to interact with many of you – by email, on Facebook, Instagram and sometimes even in person.  Along the way I’ve made new friends and been able to take you along as we explore New Orleans.

This episode is my chance to say thanks for your support, encouragement and friendship.

A Special Thanks! 

The following people helped me get the podcast launched and play an integral role in keeping me going.

Kevin Harvell – the guy who introduced me to Lou Mongello and encouraged me to pursue my ideas.  Kevin is the host of several podcasts including Tech Informist, Everything VR & AR, and Who’s Who in St. Louis. This last one is on hiatus, but I hope it comes back soon!

Lou Mongello – the man who gave me the inspiration and encouragement to start. Check out Lou’s incredible Disney podcast, WDW Radio.

Joel Sharpton – the voice behind the wonderful intro at the start of each episode. Joel is a voice artist, podcaster, professional podcast editor and consultant. Find him at

Kate McCreary – Kate helps me with the research for Beyond Bourbon Street and is a great sounding board as we try to find the narrative for each topic.

Scott McCrossen – Scott designed the podcast cover art you see on iTunes and as the image for this episode at the top of the post you are reading now! He is a brilliantly creative and generous soul, who pours his heart into helping clients develop their brands. You can find Scott at

Jenn G. – Jenn is a close friend, a lover of all things New Orleans, and the person who came up with the name Beyond Bourbon Street. Thanks, Jenn!

Marie, Olivia and Sophia – My wife and daughters. The words thank you cannot begin to express what I feel for the support, interest, space, understanding, and beer you all have given me over the last year. I love all of you to the moon and back.
