I used to be a plumber. I used to be a writer. I used to be a computer consultant. I used to be a carpenter. I used to be a bartender. I used to be a kid. I am still all of those things. I am the proud father of an amazing girl. I have blue collar blood with a white collar mind. I collect bicycles and race very poorly on them. I'm a lousy surfer but that hasn't stopped me from loving it anyway. I own a boat called the Sunset Bandit. I miss playing with action figures. I dream of floating along like Huckleberry Finn. If it's a sport, chances are I love it. Put tools in my hand and I can build just about anything. I am anti-office politics. I always cut to the chase. I am the grand optimist. I see things for what they can be.
