September 8th, 2019

I sat in the middle of a bar with a couple of friends as we watched a coworker of ours start his set on the stage in front of us, he spat a couple of decent bars. I felt like it was worth the drive over.  It was a small bar, dark with the occasional stream of colored lights that flowed around the room, it seemed like a decent place to grab a drink or two and simply chill with some friends. It didn’t take long for a small crowd started to form in front of the stage.

Uriel Larson

September 20th, 2017

The first time I’ve ever met Uriel was back in late February of  2017 when I was rehired as a photographer at the Busch Gardens’ merchandise department. I had accidentally called her Ariel before proceeding to sing ‘Under the Sea’ with her for a solid few minutes. It was safe to say that we became pretty good friends at work shortly after that.  Uriel was originally from Merritt Island, Florida before moving to Tampa in June of 2013 to go to The University of South Florida as a theater major. Uriel had always held a strong passion for the magic that was hidden in the... Read More
