Stephen King once told me that to become a better writer, I should write every day. His expectations were way too high. I used to write on this blog a lot, but then I reproduced, and my little girl now takes up most of my time.
This blog first began when my wife and I lived in California for a few months and I wanted to document our travels. Since then, it has become a wall to which I can post all the crap that comes to mind.
I live in West Michigan, writing software and learning to be a dad. I grew up as a very conservative fundamentalist Baptist kid, a team which I stayed on until my mid-twenties. I’ve since freed myself from religion and now I’m fascinated by its weirdness. A lot of my posts are commentary on the whackiness of believers.
My wife is an amazing woman, a nurse who spends her nights saving and healing babies, a much more noble profession than writing websites that sell shoes.
We now have a daughter in addition to the dog, and she takes up most of the free time I once had. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
