Welcome to the new MichaelVanKerckhove.com.

Thank you for stopping by!

Inspired by my move from Chicago to Nashville, this site finally got the update and makeover it deserved. So, so long Chicago skyline illustration, and hello new artwork by the most excellent Borja Cabada!

Browse through the updated Publication and Performance (and eventually Theatre...) archives. Read and listen to online stories, and learn how to order copies of print publications.

Say Hi if you make it to my next event.

If you're so inclined, subscribe to the Blog. I'm feeling like posting more these days.

I look forward to sharing my new adventures with you.
