An Introvert’s Guide to Surviving a Global Pandemic


In the face of a global pandemic, you would think that it would be an introvert’s time to shine. And in large part, you’d be correct. However, it’s tough, even for us introverts, to stay inside and follow pandemic rules when we have to. So, hopefully, you feel our pain. And also, you will follow our lead when it comes to surviving a catastrophic, end-of-the-world-like situation.

With this book, the first in a series, I’m ready to share 25 mostly factual, somewhat humorous tips (from an introvert, not only FOR introverts) that will help you conquer your fears… and might make you productive, too. #IntrovertsGuide

Dawson’s Ink Presents… The #INK80


This year has ruined everyone’s plans. There are no trips to see relatives, no vacations across the globe, and most importantly, no regularly seeing friends or making new acquaintances. One of my favorite things was gathering friends together and making over the top introductions, giving each friend the kind of praise that they rightfully deserve. I let folks know what they’ve accomplished, and what they could accomplish.

That’s what I miss the most. And I can’t let this go without doing something. Thus… The #INK80!

It’s my way of still praising folks I know, but from a distance. Virtually. Eighty of em. So won’t you join me as I throw bouquets in the form of a list. It’s my pleasure to do it, and honestly… it’s all I got.


Dawson Eats America: The Podcast


As a young boy growing up in St. Albans, Queens, I was always exposed to different food cultures. In my neighborhood alone, I had the best of Italian, Jamaican, and American cuisine within a 30 block radius. Those different cultures formed my palate, and allowed me to experience a wide array of tastes and smells every single day. Through the years, I’ve found myself asking where those different cuisines came from. How it’s prepared. What gives it its flavor. WHO gives it its flavor.

Being able to meet the masterminds behind the dishes adds to those memories, and hearing their stories help me form a lasting bond with those moments. With this podcast, my mission is to combine my love of food with the stories behind them, the history. City to city. State to state.
