I’m David Howell, and I have found that some of my best thoughts are generally inspired over a great cup of coffee and a few minutes to just think.

Brews and Views is a place where I try to make sense of some of those coffee thoughts.  I write from the perspective of a husband, son, and father of three living in the midwestern U.S.

I spend my days in corporate America, pursuing my dreams. By night, however, I spend my time as Coffee Man (cue the epic hero music)— the caffeine-crazed superhero who saves the sanity of millions with his superpowers of blogging sense into their otherwise mundane lives.

I love to write, and I write about “stuff”. Things that occur to me throughout the day, thoughts about life, etc. It’s an eclectic bunch of randomness.

I also have a healthy appreciation for others who blog and, as such, I post interviews with other bloggers who I find interesting for one reason or another–perhaps they’ve success in building a following, their style of writing is unique or it may be that they have simply had an experience-filled life. Interviews are generally every week or two with other miscellaneous content posted along the way.

Hey! Thanks for dropping by! Please, by all means…grab a cup, fill it up and enjoy the views!  Along the way feel free to jump in with a comment or two to share your own perspective as well– I’d love to hear from you.


P.S. If you’d like to recommend a specific blogger that you think would make a great interview, please visit my Interviews page to send me their information. Thanks for stopping by.

    • Thank you sir! I’m thoroughly enjoying yours as well. I just started mine so I’d love any feedback you may have! I was pleasantly surprised at how similar our blogs are. Your writing is inspiring!


  1. Hello Dave…

    I was recently ‘told off’ by a blogger (not a follower I might add), who said my style of ‘welcome’ note was very much against blogging etiquette. Hmm, well I hope not to cause offence, but as you volunteered to become a follower of Uncle Spike’s Adventures, I just wanted to catch up and say “thank you, and that I appreciate your ‘follow’ as there are so many interesting and entertaining blogs out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on our farm in Turkey. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process. That’s not me trying to be pushy or ‘spamming’, but just want you to know what I’m all about.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

      Unfortunately, if I did have brownies, I’d probably eat them all before anyone else had a chance to enjoy them 🙂 I have a massive sweet tooth. It’s horrible.


      • No – not nearly that sophisticated though it sounds divine. Mine is from the Keurig at home with a Starbuck’s French Roast K-cup (or 3 or 5 or 7 – depending on the day) and Sweet Italian Cream by Coffeemate! (I work from home and drink coffee all day and wine all evening! LOL! It sounded so much more intriguing before I explained!!! 🙂
