This blog (an activity I’ve been indulging in since 2003) represents a sliver of the always curious, slightly frantic, and occasionally nutty nature of my mind and personality. It is my intent to share with you the interesting sights and sounds I encounter during my peregrinations around the World Wide Internet, as well as from my own personal life.
WHAT IS MROD?
“MRod,” which friends have been calling me since college, is similar to nicknames given to professional athletes with whom I share the same popular last name, but not salary.
I grew up in Anchorage, Alaska and went through the predictable phases involving Cosby sweaters, coke-bottle eye glasses, and bowl-cut hairstyles. I now reside in Manhattan.
Currently a Program Development Manager at MTV Networks by day and by night a blogger for Sundance Channel’s blog “SUNfiltered” where I focus on art, music, design, film, hilarious shit and everything in between.
Previously I worked in marketing at a casual video game company, as well as in advertising running national and regional ad campaigns.
This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed here represent my own and not those of my current, future, or past employers. I sometimes use a voice in my writing or post content that is not necessarily an accurate representation of who I am or what I truly believe. Therefore, I hope you understand nuance, sarcasm, and satire, even if it is poorly written at times. If you do not like what you read here or find the content disagreeable, then please stop reading and find alternative distractions.
I’m always open to new ideas, links, stories, or any other suggestions. You can contact me via:
