Who Am I?

So, you’re here.¬†You’re probably thinking, “who is this guy?”

Celebrating in Key West by hoisting my bicycle above my head. This marked the end of our first long-term, self-supported tour.
Celebrating in Key West after cycling from Jacksonville, FL.

Let me tell you.

By trade, I am an IT Education Specialist (senior level, because I’m awesome). That means I develop materials to teach people information technology skills. That includes teaching classroom-based and online workshops, presenting webinars, writing blog posts, writing training books, etc. Basically, a technical writer with people skills. I like my job, but it’s not all I do. I mean, a lot of what I do is teaching, but I enjoy other things too. Here’s a list because lists are cool:

  • I am newly married!
  • My wife and I are new¬†adventure cyclists, but learning quickly!
  • I’ve been a climber for about 13 years. I teach climbing and ropes course directors for the BSA.
  • I am an avid, year-round, bicycle commuter.
  • I also enjoy swimming and running.
  • I have been making delicious home-brew beer since 2006.
  • I am an aspiring beekeeper and mazer (someone who makes mead).

This is a new way of thinking about my personal web site. Specifically, I will be focusing on writing about how I experience the word.
