Engineer. Lawyer. WordPress geek. Bicycle commuter. Blood donor. Snapshooterist extraordinaire.

Longer version

I used to take blogging all serious and wrote about politics and religion. Not (much) anymore. Now I write about family vacations, bicycling, food recipes, and other fun stuff we do. I’m also a snapshooterist extraordinaire who takes pictures of the sky, buildings, and the field across from the Hillsboro airport.

I’m an engineer and a lawyer. I’ve practiced patent law and criminal defense (with just enough divorce thrown in to let me know that it’s not for me—from either side of the conference room table).

Now I’m doing work I love for Intel,1 leading a small design team that creates some cool design validation tools. When your computer powers up successfully, you can thank my team.

I married my college sweetheart and we have four kids, two working as advice nurses in a pediatric clinic, one in college, and one in high school. Actually, better make that five kids as we have a Korean high school exchange student living with us for her third year. We also have two dogs, two cats, a chinchilla, and a goldfish.

I have been writing online since the late 80′s when I was running a Fidonet “point plus node” with the tagline:

blogan >>--> hot air powers the point (1:105/4.27)

That was long before blogs and people were more likely to pronounce blogan with a long “O” sound, making it rhyme with blowgun.
