Single_Never_Married - An Original Web Series

Hello world!

As many of you know, I created, wrote, executive produced, and starred in my web series about dating called Single_Never_Married. It is also based off the book I wrote called How to Get Real About Dating. The web series was selected to be in the Los Angeles Web Festival this year, which was a great experience. Here's an episode if you haven't seen it --


The first season is done and we have two left to publish on Youtube. This has been a great experience and now I am planning on doing the second season. There are MAJOR surprises in store! I'm adding three more main characters and expanding the shows. It's going to be like a mixture between Girls and Sex in the City. In the second season, issues around age, acceptance, sexuality, love, and relationships are discussed.

As of now, I want to pitch it to Lifetime, or OWN. I think it would be a great fit! I am also looking for investors to fund the second season and take it to the next level. If you know of anyone or have interest in investing please email me at HamiltonWriting@gmail.com. We're looking to raise around $35,000. Plus, we can get famous actors and already have a business proposal with all of the details.

Michael Sam: NFL's First Openly Gay Player

It's official, history is made: Michael Sam is the first openly gay man to be in the National Football League!

The news came to Michael on Saturday evening as he sat with his boyfriend looking courageous despite not hearing his name being called as the seventh round picks began being named. Although he looked confident and strong, I was getting worried. Why was the SEC co-defensive player of the year in 2013 not chosen in the second or third round? He's all the things you'd like to see in an NFL player: talented, respectful, classy, motivated, multi-dimensional, and smart. This was very obvious to me when I met him a few weeks ago in Los Angeles, California with his adorable boyfriend, Vito Cammisano.


Yes, his name was called late but the important thing is that Michael Sam made it into the NFL! The St. Louis Rams are lucky to have such a great football player. I know coach Jeff Fisher will handle the situation with dignity and grace.

Congrats, Michael Sam!!

Training a dog can be challenging.

But, having one is the greatest thing in the world! Violet is my best friend. Want a dog? Consider rescuing one instead of going through a breeder. There are a lot of amazing dogs in shelters, such as mine.
