Seems that most of my energies these days are focused on the small publishing company I started back in 2011. It’s called ArtSource Publishing and so far, we’ve released three books that I’ve written, all dealing with aspects of Greek culture: The Greek Orthodox Wedding Book, Child of Light The Greek Orthodox Baptism Book, and The Official Greek Festival Guidebook. Each of the books feature original illustrations by a noted artist interested in the Greek experience.
I’m also involved in a much more hedonistic activity — the quest for exceptional food. I’ve been consumed by that quest for a long time. If I’m not cooking, I’m usually searching out noteworthy restaurants or new recipes. Of course, I read all I can about food, chefs, restaurants, and the “culinary arts.” It’s become an addiction.
And I travel. Quite a bit. Not as much as Anthony Bourdain, but enough to find out what’s going on in as many of the most interesting food cities as possible. NYC, LA, San Francisco, Paris, Venice, San Sebastian, Athens, Barcelona are some favorite destinations.
This bio wouldn’t be complete unless I told you that I’ve lived in New York City and Washington DC. Loved them both. My previous company, Jameson Broadcast, was in located in DC. It’s where I had considerable fun writing and producing special broadcast features for numerous national publications and corporate sponsors.
Now, I’m living in the small, arts-oriented city of Sarasota, FL with my incredibly talented wife, Trulee Jameson. She’s an artist and a fine art printer. She’s also my long-time business partner and my muse.
