Hi, I’m Michelle. Welcome to My World.

I write and I play drums. What else do you need to know? Follow me and you will catch on in no time!

I am probably best known for my weekly “On the Move” column in the Houston Chronicle. My work is also featured in various publications, corporate blogs and white papers. While my professional specialty is real estate and the relocation industry, my personal life moves to a much different beat.

I have a pen, and I’m not afraid to use it!

The Magic of Social Media

Go ahead and admit it.  You have “friends” on your Facebook page that you have never even met.  Don’t feel bad, we all do.  But regardless of whether you are “friends” with someone or not, the important distinction comes with the word “connection,” as opposed to “friend.”  I have some very deep, transcendental connections and relationships with the important people in my life.  That is a given.  Through the magic of social media, we are acutely aware that we are […]

Ragin Cajun: My Slice of Louisiana in Texas

This is not the first time I have written about Ragin Cajun, and I dare say it won’t be the last.  If you live in Houston, Texas hopefully you are familiar with this restaurant and have eaten there.  If you haven’t, then I hope after reading this you will give it a try. I am from Louisiana, but technically, I am not a Cajun.  I grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana, which is located in the northwestern corner of the state, […]

I Should Be Asleep…

It looks like I am up to one of my old tricks. It’s 1:28 in the morning, and while others are fast asleep, I am wide awake and on my computer.  Actually, I am on all 3 of my computers and my iPhone.  You are probably thinking that is pretty excessive, but there is a reason.  I am creating a video on my Mac, blogging on my PC and looking at files on my work computer, and my iPhone is […]

Marching to the Beat of My Own Drummer

I was asked last night to give a brief synopsis about my passion for drumming for a potential opportunity to be featured along with my drums in an upcoming magazine article.  This is one of those moments when my professional life touches my personal life.  Actually, the two overlap all of the time, mostly of my own doing.  In person or on-line, what people see everyday is me, the real me! So, how did this whole drumming thing come about? […]

Inspired By Bruce Springsteen

Have you ever been to a Bruce Springsteen concert?  It’s like nothing you have ever experienced before, and is often compared with good reason to a religious experience.  I have seen him only twice, but both times I was completely inspired. The first time was after a little record he recorded called “Born in the USA.” Maybe you have heard of it.  I had only just become a Springsteen fan a few years before.  This was during the real hay […]

My Official Job Is DRUMMER!

This is an unusual week for me. Technically, you could say that I am unemployed.  Actually, I just have a little time off this week before beginning a new job next Monday.  So that means that my official job this week is drummer, and I couldn’t be happier!  In fact, I would have been writing more often over the last few months, only I have been really wrapped up in my drums. To bring you up to speed, I started […]
