A few things about me and my interests:

I am a 34 year-old married man who lives in Slidell, LA with my wife Julie, and our 5 year-old daughter Skai Rachel Ann Buckley. The "2GRITS" in the title of my website stands for: 2 Girls Raised In The South.  That's my wife and our daughter!   I work at Best Buy electronics store in Slidell, and I'm in the media section with the videogames and movies.  It's right "up my alley" because I love movies and videogames very much!  I'm hooked on the X-Box now.  It's really the best gaming console out there now.  I collect movie and TV-related toys and memorabilia.  I've been a collector of movie posters for over 20 years now. 
Star Wars 10th Anniversary Poster 1977 - 1987
My favorite poster in my collection by Drew Struzan.

I mostly grew up in and around the area of Lafayette, LA in "cajun country" of southwest Louisiana.  I was born in Natchitoches, LA, and ended up finishing high school and college in that "hometown" of mine.  I went to Natchitoches Central my junior and senior years of high school, and graduated in 1990.  I then attended and graduated from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, LA in 1995 with a Bachelor Of Science degree in Advertising Design.  I am now settled in Slidell, LA with my wife and daughter.

Me and my friends acting goofy like always!

The Good Old Days...

This picture is from 1991.  It is my friends, David Pine (squatting), Robert Reichle (on the right), and me in college taking a picture for our "band" we called "Frigate".  It wasn't a real band, just an idea we had.  We just messed around with my cheap electric guitar and had fun.
