Hello all and welcome to JoshuaReid-Davis.net many of you know me from the many Conventions that I have hosted, I am the Emcee for Eyecon Celebrity Autograph Conventions. It has been my honor and privilege to work with Star Trek, Twilight, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf, Once Upon A Time, One Tree Hill, and other multi-genre conventions. Some of you know me from childhood, school, college, The US NAVY, or I randomly struck up a conversation with you and during that time you're asking yourself, “WHO IS THIS PERSON?” I'm only joking yet I do strike up many random conversations with strangers and I have made some really interesting friends that way.
I’m so blessed and fortunate to work for Eyecon because over the years I went from working as a Personal Assistant to Emceeing conventions around the United States with our staff and fans and we all refer to ourselves as THE EYECON FAMILY! Attending conventions is great because people come from all over the world to our conventions and it's all for the love of the show. We have fans from all walks of life that form friendships and a bond over the course of the convention weekend and it's a bond/friendship that may have never happened if they had met in the real world. We have people from all walks of life that enjoy a show so much and have a fun filled weekend where they meet other fans, the celebrities that they all love, and it's a wonderful experience and I have the pleasure of hosting the convention along side an amazing team of people that are more than coworkers, more than friends, they are my family. Kenny and Autumn I truly thank you for taking a chance on me and letting me host the shows that you work so hard to put together.
I wanted to start this page to talk launch the release of my Audio Book Behind The Smile that is now on iTunes, Audible, Audiobooks, Hoopla, Down Pour, Over Drive, LibroFm,& Audiobooks Now. I also wanted to randomly blog and talk about things that are on my mind and share stories as they happen.
I have always known that God had a plan and a purpose for my life and like many people I am always smiling and happy yet a side of me that no one ever really sees is Behind The Smile…. Which prompted me to do this audio book all that I have ever wanted in life is to make a difference. When people look back on my life I want them to think of a difference that I made in the world.. I don't crave fame or anything of that nature; I just wanna know that when I'm gone I'll be able to leave something behind for people to remember. I've been sick for the last several years & I've spent more time in hospitals than I can count. I thought that I had my future figured out but then I realized that the future can't be planned it can only be embraced, sometimes the things we hope for or want aren't meant to be and we are destined for something far greater than we could have ever imagined. Life throws many obstacles our way, they break us down and when we are broken and at our lowest point; that's not what defines us... It's when we look back and day this is what I overcame to make me who I am today.
I thought that I had my future figured out but then I realized that the future can't be planned it can only be embraced, sometimes the things we hope for or want aren't meant to be and we are destined for something far greater than we could have ever imagined. Life throws many obstacles our way, they break us down and when we are broken at our lowest point; that's not what defines us... It's when we look back and say this is what I overcame to make me who I am today... That's when we know we've only just begun to bigger and better things in life. Throughout Behind The Smile we will venture to good times, not so good times, lessons learned, and so much more...
I hope that you enjoy my page and take a listen to my audio book and I hope to stay connected with you all!
