For the love of great stories, people, and places.
Hello, I’m W. Andrew Powell.
For more than 20 years I’ve been writing about entertainment, travel, food, and Scotch. Back in 2001, I started The GATE, an online entertainment magazine that keeps me busy, especially interviewing hundreds of creators, filmmakers, actors, and amazing, talented people.

It’s been a long time since I’ve listened to vinyl. I’m old enough that I actually grew up with the occasional record, especially at Christmas, but those days ended some time around 1989. By the time I was a teenager, I only had eyes for CDs, although some of my choices were pretty embarrassing back then.
This year I’m feeling like a professional photographer, and I know how that sounds, but it’s pretty amazing to me.
