“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyse a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” — Robert Heinlein, Time Enough for Love
I am about a lot of things.
I get paid to be a product designer, and my days are spent writing code and designing visual images of software.
But I’m also an artist, father, athletics coach, carpenter, gamer, bodybuilder, lightweight Otaku, investor, a culinary junkie, an off-road enthusiast, speaker, a homeowner, a remodeler, and very curious dude. I spend a lot of time researching the things I love. I believe in following passions and exploring.
Beyond the things I do, I love reading and weightlifting. I like playing games competitively and enjoy deconstructing the metas and strategy. I also enjoy figuring out how my favorite things got made. I spend a lot of time in the gym trying to stay as strong as I possibly can.
My home is Crawfordsville, IN. It is a very boring place to live but extremely affordable. I do enjoy traveling. Sedona, Arizona has my heart at the moment.
