About

Howdy, y’all! Thanks for visiting; glad to have ya.

The Blog

This is my personal blog where I share mixed thoughts about different things that I’m interested in. I hope my writing resonates with you or benefits you in a positive way. I also post my best or favorite photos to my Gallery instead of to Flickr or Instagram.

Some post topics include photography, simplicity/minimalism, technology/computers, and blogging/writing. Maybe even parenting or anxiety (maybe those are related)! Occasionally, I’ll post on a different category. Variety is the spice of life, isn’t it?

This blog is also my creative outlet to tinker with web design and just to practice writing in general.

The Geek

I’m a Texan, y’all. Also, left-handed. I was born with Celiac disease–so gluten-free. In my day job, I do a lot of industrial structural design: 2D drafting and 3D modeling (AutoCAD).

I’m an introspective introvert, connecting with others on the public internet. A bit ironic, I guess!

 

Speaking of relationships, I have a lovely wife and five (5) energetic young sons! We share a smallish old house with only one bathroom! We homeschool our kids. And we have some animals: a snake, a dog, cats, chickens, and goats.

I like hiking, back-packing, mountain-biking, and RV living. I practice Kyokushin Karate with my family. Tiny Houses are fascinating to me. I enjoy movies and Nintendo games. And I like reading books. Photography is also a small hobby of mine. And–surprise–I like blogging.

On the geek-nerd spectrum, I am more geek. In college, my major was Industrial Design and Development. My minor was Computer Science until I switched to Philosophy. Because that’s totally similar. I’m a techie too, I guess. I’m not dogmatic about this identity stuff though. It’s just hard to nail down; it can be fluid, mixed.

Connect with me on Twitter. You can also contact me or comment and tell me about yourself!

Thanks 🙂
