Hello. My name is Mike Irvan. I am 33 years old and married with 2 step-children, and I live in Batavia, Arkansas. It is a small town just north of Harrison, Arkansas. I am currently enrolled in the digital media program at North Arkansas College. I am currently in my 3rd semester, but I’m looking forward to graduating next year. I chose the digital media program because I am a very creative minded individual. I like to paint, make short films, play music, working with graphic and web design, and anything else creative. Some of my work you probably have seen on one of the many social networks offered.
Some of my other hobbies include: anything vintage American pop culture (hippies, old cars, drive-ins, roller coasters, etc), musicology, theology, history, traveling, and technology. My blog consists of different articles relating to my interests.
I am an amateur musicologist. I love reading about and learning about anything involving the history behind some of our most popular music. I can tell you lots of facts about Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and Motown, for example.
As a kid, I always loved George Lucas and Steven Spielberg films. Movies like Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Back To The Future have always left me awestruck. I also love the Terminator movies, and Titanic, but will watch just about anything. I love movies! Watching movies as a kid inspired me to have an interest in making films. I have made some short films myself which can be seen on my YouTube page.
I love to write and have written a few things, but haven’t sold anything yet. Some of my work can be seen on my blog.
I do enjoy video games, however I am not a gamer. I will play for a while but then I get bored after a while, and my favorite game of all time are any of the Super Mario Brothers games.
I love technology and how it has changed marketing, but I advise everyone to please be careful with it. Social media networking is a tool with obvious benefits, but also has its obvious problems too. I am on several social media networks in hopes that it gets my work noticed.
I do believe in God and I’m a member of Alpena First Baptist Church. I recently joined and decided to finally put God first. It has been the best decision I ever made in my life.
That is all I have for now. If you share similar interests and looking for someone to talk to, feel free to contact me. I am always happy to meet with those I share similar interests with.
