Attend my event

Hello! I'm called Melvin. I do several things! I'm an independent artist, majordomo for multi-award-winning Pinhook Karaoke, social media manager for Flash Chorus, freelance writer for Dogster, and Senior VP of Marketing and Social Media for Greenguard Equine!

My contribution to scholarly discourse, "Cosmopolitan Friendship in James Boswell’s 'Journal of a Tour to Corsica,'" can be found in "1650-1850: Ideas, Aesthetics, and Inquiries in the Early Modern Era" (vol 20, October 2013).

As for creative pursuits, I always have something in The Carrack's biannual Community Art shows. I also recently sold two pieces in a benefit for Habitat for Humanity! Three of my pieces were published in the "Raleigh Review" (vol 3, 2012-2013), and I have an online art shop open at Society6!
