About this site

Years ago, in a fit of angst over a boy, my daughter asked me to tell her about all the dumb things I did as a teenager (to help her feel better about her situation).

Three hours of stories later, she said, “Thanks Dad, that’s enough…”.

But she WAS interested in the stories, so I started to write them out for her, and that’s how this website got started.

So here it is, for better or worse, my life’s happenings…

So who is this guy?

Born in Scotland and raised in Canada, I came to the US on the back of Nortel Networks in 1996. I’ve worked in public relations, employee relations, marketing communications, project and account management, tech writing, customer service, content strategy, and management. I’ve also been a photographer, movie-maker, Apple Store dude, and a website builder.

Ten years ago I left Raleigh, NC, to marry Jackie. Since then we’ve lived near Washington DC, Saint Louis MO, Dayton Ohio, back in Raleigh, then Nova Scotia Canada, and now back to North Carolina. 

I’ve taken a job at Grafana Labs, and soon Jackie will be building an art business, which is something she’s wanted to do for a long, long time.
