Winston Smallwood

There are some people in this world of whom you could write novels.  And other people - well - there is only so much to say.  And then there are those people who just... are.  Winston is one of those people.  Someone created him, and so he is. 

You shake his hand, catch his eye, and say, "Hello."  And somehow, just like that, you have known him for years; like a best friend you never knew you had.  Most know him as a fool, a jester, and a clown.  But surprisingly, underneath all of his folly, you realize something about him and, more importantly, yourself.  He is not random.  He has a charge; a cause.  He is calculated and has purpose to all of his apparent lack thereof.  He has somehow made it okay for you to be normal - quirks and all. 

"My objective in anything that I do, is to create a sense of "normal."  Sometimes, that means I have to take charge of a situation, or be some kind of a paramount that others strive to become.  Most times, it just means I need to be completely absurd." 

Currently majoring in Film, Winston is an artist and a writer.  You can listen to his show on Fridays from 10:00 AM -1:00 PM.
