About “Craig Hodgkins”
I’m a writer and ruminator, meeting facilitator, conference and event speaker, reader and movie buff (they’re not mutually exclusive), satirist and musician, outdoorsman, former athlete and native Californian.
As you may have gleaned from this blog’s subtitle, I enjoy writing about music, movies, television & literature, as well as whatever else strikes my fancy. Since I began blogging in July 2007, my MO has largely been to identify gaps in the historical record in my areas of interest, and then attempt to fill them (with varying degrees of success).
There’s so much info available online that I try to avoid rehashing what’s already out there in a million places. That’s why you’ll find me posting about under-appreciated or forgotten writers (such as Frank Fenton, Van Reid, Walter Brooks, Palmer Brown and George Stewart), and gifted and influential artists, musicians and performers of bygone eras (Such as Bud Dashiell and Travis Edmonson, aka Bud & Travis, MFQ, The Chad Mitchell Trio & John Stewart).
I also write about events I’ve hosted which may be of interest to others (such as some of my work with The Walt Disney Company).
Need an alarming level of detail? Well, since you asked, I’m the Craig Hodgkins who attended Tahoe Lake Elementary, Parkview Elementary (Chico, CA), Hemlock and Pope Avenue Elementary (Sacramento, CA), Tara Hills Elementary (Pinole, CA), Browns Valley Elementary and Ridgeview Junior High (Napa, CA), Napa High School, Pepperdine University, BIOLA University, Cal State Fullerton and USC…who lived/lives in Napa, California; Aspen, Colorado; Nashua, New Hampshire and — for the past several years — all over Southern California…who worked/works at Disneyland, The Walt Disney Studios, The Disney Store, Disney Art Editions, Walt Disney Art Classics, HBRA, Flashcom, Mariners and Saddleback, and — perhaps most importantly — who is the husband of Diane and father of Emily, Erin and Eric.
If you know any of the Craig Hodgkins‘ listed above, I’d love to hear from you.

Here’s the old photo above. Nothing wrong with hanging out in the library, especially if you don’t have to leave home to do it.
