I am an artist, maker, writer, programmer, father of two, husband, brother, son.
I have a camera within reach almost all the time and enjoy pointing it at things I want to remember.
I enjoy listening to music and books. But sometimes I just like silence so that I can hear myself think.
I work as a programmer for a corporate payments company.
I play guitar, HEX: Shards of Fate, Minecraft, D&D, various other games and piano.
I buy too much junk, i.e. gadgets and electronics.
I love my wife and kids, my weird cat, Abby, my dog, when it rains, dramatic clouds, mountains, making things, making people laugh, learning new things, teaching, eating out, Dr. Pepper, artichokes, traveling to new places, returning home.
I speak Japanese somewhat fluently.
I make circuit boards, things out of wood, handmade paper, books, sushi…but mostly, a big mess.
I believe in a soul, that all people are created equal, I can fly (metaphorically).
I suffer from insomnia, restless leg syndrome, chronic depression, countless insecurities, middle age weight gain, allergies, night-time cookie cravings.
I wish I could work from home, travel the world, have the time to explore all my interests, always be happy.
I want to make a dent in the universe.
