Years ago, I was bitten by this bug. It wasn’t serious, but it definitely had an effect on my life. I was in a spot where I was pretty — okay fine, I was very unhealthy and overweight. My former self of an athlete in my youth and high school years was long behind me. […] [...]

I like my job a lot. I have the incredible opportunity to learn something new each day, and the chance to get to teach something new to someone also.

I recently spent some time back at Mississippi State’s fifth-year architecture school here in Jackson talking to some students about their work. I find these times a place where I can get inspired and find some hope and optimism back in the world from the pure and innocence of design that can be mired by […] [...]

Jeff: “My name is Jeff Seabold, and I like gadgets.” Crowd: “Hi, Jeff.” This is how I imagine in my head how it will go if I ever have to sign up for a support group for my gadget, or toy, addiction as I call it. I am fairly frugal, so I try not to […] [...]

Seabold: “Great feats come from bold ideas and visionary leadership”

Very early in my career I was asked by some friends for some help to remodel their kitchen. I was working for a firm that specialized in commercial work at the time, and they didn’t want to touch it. So I took on my first moonlighting job. Everything was going well, and I thought the […] [...]

Keeping your resolution

>> New Year’s is the time to start fresh. It is the time we have to reinvent ourselves. This largely ceremonial journey is celebrated by almost half of Americans. I personally feel like almost everyone I know makes some sort of resolution. While the studies are not clear about the number of Americans making resolutions, […] [...]

I have never been to a ghost town. I don’t view this as an unfortunate shortcoming of my youth; I have seen enough Westerns in my years that I get the idea. I don’t imagine that they are really ghosts towns anymore as much as they are the idea of a ghost town with souvenir […] [...]

When I was young I had a fear of vegetables. In fact, I hated them — or at least I thought I did. My mother, being a good mother, would serve them to me every night only to have me slide the plate across the table or spread them out on the plate and say, […] [...]
