tl;dr

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

Longer version

I’m trained as an engineer and a lawyer. I’ve practiced patent law and criminal defense (with just a little divorce law thrown in the mix to know I don’t like it, 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 have been writing online since the late 80’s2 when I was running a Fidonet “point plus node” with the tagline:

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

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 snapshooter extraordinaire who takes pictures of the sky, buildings, and Dawson Creek Park.
