I've been running gtmcknight.com since July 2002. Blogging has made me friends, gotten me jobs and satisfied my inner need for expression. I am an entrepreneur & web developer living in Gainesville, Florida. I enjoy brainstorming, trying new things & doing things that don't feel like work.
I can be reached at . If you take the time to write me, I will take the time to write you back.
I listen to music from the moment I wake up until I fall asleep. It is an important part of my life. My dream is to perform on stage someday (just once), but I should probably get some talent and/or learn how to play guitar first. Until then I play journalist at festivals like CMJ Music Marathon, Athens Popfest & SXSW Music.
I've been obsessively keeping track of what I'm listening to since 2003 on my profile at Last.FM. I've also been enjoying what MTV must have been like before all the reality shows with Chime.TV's Indie Music Video Channel.
