I tell stories, but they’re my stories, mostly about my life. The tagline on most, if not all of my social networking pages goes something like this:
Father, Husband, Beer Snob, Intermittent Blogger, Sailor, Thinker, Skeptic.
And for the most part that’s true. There’s more to me than the average 140ish characters to describe myself, but that’s what I’ve come up with, the bulk of my existence. The first social media website I invested any time into was Twitter, and due to their limitations, I had to be brief and concise with my description. I think it pretty much sums everything up.
Father. I have two kids, Emily and Joshua and they mean the world to me. They may not be the best kids in the world, but I’ll never be more proud to be called their Dad.
Husband. I have the best wife in the world, Kendra. She’s put up with me for so long I don’t know where’d I be now if it weren’t for her.
Beer Snob. Somewhere in the years of getting older, I got a taste for finely crafted beer. Now that my life is becoming a little more predictable, I’m planning on trying my own hand at making something that people can enjoy.
Intermittent Blogger. I have had something riding the ethers of the internet for several years now, in a constant state of flux. I’ve started and deleted and re-designed blogs that last no more than two weeks to six months.
Sailor. I’ve been in the US Navy for more that 17 years at the time of this post. I’m getting ready to transfer to shore duty and eventually retire and start the rest of my life with my family at my side.
Thinker. People inevitably ask me, “How do you know that?” I joke and tell them that I’m the smartest person they’ll ever meet. That’s probably quite untrue, but given the amount of time that I read and learn about things, I tend to absorb more information than the average person. I also tend to over-think a lot of things as well, one of the hazards that come with a brain that is almost always “on”.
Skeptic. I have a hard time believing things at times, unless there’s hard evidence to prove it. There’s something about logic and reason that blocks out everything else. I consider myself an Atheist and a Humanist.
If you’ve made it this far, I applaud your effort to make it through the wall of text. If there’s anything else you’d like to know, email me and I’ll be glad to answer your questions.
