Born into a Navy family, I moved around quite a bit when I was young. Eventually, my father retired to the small northern-Minnesota town where he and my mom were born. After graduating high school, I moved to Minneapolis to attend the U of MN. I spent three years figuring out I didn't want to be an electrical engineer and drifted into the job market. Around the same time I hooked up with the local science fiction fan and gaming communities.
Eventually, I met a nice girl, got a good job, bought a house, a car and acquired a dog and two cats. I'm pretty happy, all things considered, but I miss writing. I did more before work took more time and I'm hoping this will help me get back in the habit.
I have placed emergency contact info as the first, private, entry of my journal.
