Who am I?

Read what I wrote from late 2010 to 2018 if you care to, but it's not who I am anymore.


What happened to regular updates? I just didn't feel like updating this site when I spend so much time on Facebook; I'm not really sure how much time I'll spend on it. I think I should but then again, who'd read it and why? Perhaps the best reason might to be update where I am in life now and who I've become. My work persona on FB is considerably different than my true personal life.

May 2020

Look for 2020 updates soon
