A Picture of Michael Hall

Michael is a freelance journalist and photojournalist in the music haven of Athens GA, but he also has a day job as a communications coordinator (got to pay The Man somehow). After earning his journalism degree from UGA, he worked for weekly and daily newspapers before going corporate. To make himself feel better about... well, himself, he is now writing for The Blue Indian. He likes contemplative music from bands that, at the very least, know how to play their instruments. He is getting tired of synthesizers.
