About Me

Just an average guy, techie type, survivor, trying to make an honest living. In recent years I've become more politically aware, after being apathetic about politics most of my life (sometimes I wish I still was). I enjoy traveling (except for work), golf, food, wine, reading, and I actually enjoy my work (just wish it didn't require as much travel).
