Editor’s Note

Hi, I’m Michael Jereld…

Most days, you can find me striving to be the best husband and father I can be while exploring new ways to learn and perfect my craft as a digital creator.

Although the label “social introvert” is pretty common within the introvert community, I’ve yet to come across two words that accurately characterizes my personality and style.

I’m committed to following the creative path the Lord has paved for me, with hopes to motivate and inspire others to follow their dreams. So for me, being a social introvert is not only a persona, it’s a lifestyle that has been molded into an evolving digital media experience.
