IMG_0607I was born in 1984 in a small neighborhood on the north side of Chicago called Lakewood-Balmoral. We lived at the corner. In 1993, my dad brought home an IBM 386, and the rest has been bittersweet.

Today, I live in Denver, Colorado with my wife, Mindi, and our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Penny. I’m studying Library and Information Science at Emporia State University in the 2017 Denver cohort. I aspire to work in an academic library to fulfill my dream of always being in school. I am also the host of Geeks Who Drink at the British Bulldog, for whom I write a weekly blog. I run a semi-regular Dungeons & Dragons campaign, and I’m always working on a story twist or engaging encounter. The best La Croix flavor is Tangerine, and I am certain I can persuade anyone of that fact.
