Hello there, welcome to my blog. Yes, I said “blog,” out loud, in 2020. 🙂
Who am I?
Here are the fun things you need to know right away… the rest you can decipher through the years of content here.
I’m a high school drop out, and I make no apologies and have no regrets about it. I believe that everyone with at least cell phone can replicate the value of the best education institutions on earth. It takes motivation, and it takes time. But it’s 100% possible.
Life is one big experiment, so I experiment with things. A lot. In fact, my writing the content on this page is the result of realizing that I’m not doing all I can to help people move forward in their lives. You see, this is simple. I love to learn. And on top of that, I love to hear from people that have taken action on conversations we’ve had and have created successes in their life.
Since 1993 I’ve been learning how to write code for the web. It started on a product that my friend Bracken and I built called Apartments On-Demand (yes, you guessed it, an apartment search site in 1993). This continues today with inboundgeo, a remarkable engagement and marketing platform built around offline messaging (postcards) and online “in the moment” messaging.
Computers, electronics, and tinkering are my jam. I tinker with electronics – I built and installed an 1,800 watt solar system with two Tesla modules for storage in a 2006 Keystone Montana, for example. I’m learning the great art of woodworking too between running my company, working on a permaculture system on our property in downtown Dallas, Texas, and creating content for Epic Mini Life with my wife Heather.
Amazingly I’m married with one teenager, and two dogs. Interesting data points about this? We refer to the dogs as Chihuahuas. They are not. They’re 70lb rescues. My teenager is unschooled – since finishing fourth grade. My wife and I have been married for nearing 20 years and together since the early 90’s. Pro tip: if you take relationship advice, do it from someone with these stats – not someone still trying to figure it out.
What to expect from this blog
Occasionally I’ll post links to things outside of the blog. Those may or may not be affiliate links. If they are, the products will always be things I’ve used or am using currently. While they may not be identical all of the time (computer models change, for example) the intent is there.
The content here is mine, all mine. What I mean by that is that I don’t accept third party content or guest posts. So please don’t clog the feedback systems with those requests.
If you have ideas, questions, or just want to say hi, feel free to ping me here or on any of the myriad other social networks. They’re all linked in the header and footer. I’d love to hear from you, really, even if it is just to say hi!
I hope you enjoy your time here, the content on the site, and the products and services I may mention from time to time. I’m a strong believer in the idea that the “job” is quickly becoming a thing of the past. It’s up to us, with help from each other, to make this world ours.
Be safe. Be smart. Be informed. Carry on.
