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

Who Am I?

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

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. 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:

  • My wife and I are new adventure cyclists, but learning quickly!
  • We are volunteer firefighters/EMTs for our township!
  • I am an avid, year-round, bicycle commuter.
  • I also enjoy swimming and running.
  • I have a dog and two cats. (In our household, there are three dogs and three cats!)
  • I am an aspiring beekeeper and gardener.

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