I know not all of you readers are from Ohio, but I have a great amount of love and pride for this state. I have lived in many places, in particular with family in Boston, and while I enjoy and appreciate they had to offer, nothing feels like home.

Columbus, in particular, is growing and developing a wide-spread, talented pool of young professionals and independent arts scene. From the state level to the individual, a lot of attention is being given to grow our state. So, when you hear wild acclaim in the future about the things Ohio has to offer-- I'll totally say I told you so!
