About the author: Brian Kelley

I am a third-year journalism and economics major at the University of Florida. This Web site is a project for my Communication on the Internet course (MMC3260).

A picture of me

I was born in Orange Park, Fla., and I've lived in Florida my whole life. I lead a pretty normal and boring life most of the time. I work as a copy editor at the Independent Florida Alligator.

Outside of school, I like to write and play music. As you have probably guessed, I play the guitar and sing. I am currently involved in a musical duo with my roommate Jonathan Stanley. Our band is called Oh Well Okay, and we play mostly acoustic folk and indie music.

My musical influences are quite varied. When I was in high school, I was very much into heavier music — hardcore, metal, screamo. If it was heavy, chances are I probably liked it. Nowadays, I've broadened my musical tastes quite a bit. A lot of what I listen to now is on the softer side, often acoustic. One of my major influences is Elliott Smith. I draw quite a bit of inspiration from his music.

That's really about all there is to tell. If you want to know more about me or this Web site, feel free to e-mail me and we can chat. Thanks for visiting this site, and I hope it is very useful to you. And now, please enjoy this short compilation of various bloopers from the filming of my project videos.
