No surprises here, I'm a fairly reserved, introspective guy, but I speak up when needed. I'm a die-hard DIY-er about many things, from home improvement, car repair, bike-building, etc.
I'm married to Melinda, my wife of 13 years, and we have a 5-y/o daughter together.
I work at The Nerdery in Bloomington MN leading the Solutions Engineering department. I have a passion for interactive technology, technical communications, and business development.
I tend to take a deep dive into relatively few hobbies and interests. I'm an avid cyclist; everything from building custom bikes, commuting to work, occasional races, and participating in the local cycling community here in Mpls. I'm also into photography. I recently made the jump from film to digital, and am already missing the darkroom. One of these days I'll take a deeper dive into writing.
I enjoy people who have a passion for something sincere & authentic, and can speak from experience & credibility. I'm not up-to-date about spectator sports or pop culture and don't mingle well with those who live in these genres.
