Just chugging through
the marathon of life
with the help of
my faith, my family
and an energy gel.
I am a man of letters. I can take the 26 letters of the alphabet, string them together, add in some punctuation and make people laugh, cry, get angry or go out and buy something. It's both a gift and a well-practiced skill that I've applied it to newspapers, books, magazines, marketing, the web and just about everything but skywriting. Check out my gallery for examples. Just don't ask me to do math.
I run. I'm slower than a turtle trudging through peanut butter, but I generally get where I am going. Although I'm not a natural runner and I didn't start until I was (censored) years old, I've finished eight half-marathons and a fistful of 15Ks, 14Ks, 10Ks, 5Ks and one-milers. I'm not that good, but what I am good at is taking selfies of myself while I run. See for yourselfie.
I'm a dude, and I like dude things: beer, sports, cars, leather stuff, being outdoors. I'm entirely comfortable in Lowe's, REI and Dick's Sporting Goods. I prefer wool sweaters in the winter, polos in the summer and long-sleeved T-shirts anytime of year. But I also have a degree in theology, a cat and a fear of snakes. Hey, being a dude can be complicated. Don't believe me? Check out my Pinterest page.
