About

I have rewritten this page more than once since starting my Cranial Gunk blog in 2007. I was inspired by a post Penelope Trunk wrote about blogging “being good for your career” and “setting you apart as an expert in your field.”

Since starting Cranial Gunk, I’ve posted on the group Asian American fatherhood blog, Rice Daddies, NPR’s Tell Me More, and Kevin Powell’s BK Nation. Mostly, I write about TV shows, movies, music, and books (with and without pictures).

I have reviewed books, movies, TV, music, and video games. If you would like me to write a review of your work, please know:

  1. I will be honest
  2. I do not return materials that are sent to me
  3. I do not work on a deadline (though I will make every effort to be timely)
  4. the item you’ve asked me to review must be available on Amazon (I have to be able to link to it)
  5. my review might also be shared on other blogs and additional media outlets

Please feel free to contact me with questions or requests for review. Due to the high volume of requests I can only respond to those who I have decided to review.

Please do not send me review requests through the comments section of any of the posts or pages of this blog. To be considered for a review, you must email me.

I like to say Cranial Gunk is the “psychic goo” inside my head that makes some things “sticky” and other things a struggle to recall. In addition to reviews, I also write about fatherhood and education.
