This is my digital home & personal website. I work in marketing, live in Atlanta, have done quite a few things in my short career, have an incredible family, and run this website instead of a social media presence. Read about me here or what I’m doing now here.

What To Read
This website is not “about” anything. In fact, most posts are private. But, there are plenty of public posts that I hope someone finds useful or entertaining.
Also – I’ve had this site for 15+ years, and I don’t really delete stuff, so my thoughts, opinions, habits, etc may have changed. Here’s how I’ve organized it all.
Photos of stuff I take while out and about – like Instagram used to be.
Guides to doing stuff like hanging IKEA furniture & biking in Atlanta.
Lessons I’ve learned from trying & failing for 30 odd years.
Travel and recounting places I’ve been for work, leisure or adventure.
Opinions that I share even though I’m not a fan of the Internet trolls.
Interesting stuff I find but don’t want to share or submit to social media.
Events and recounting, well, events I’ve attended.
Books Reviews* that recount what I read and what I learned.
*my book reviews are more like broad summaries to help me remember what all I’ve read. I’ve used an LLM AI to summarize some of the books while I write what I liked / disliked / learned from it.
Outdoors and all things hiking, camping, canoeing & running.
Product Reviews where I write about items and companies and…stuff.
