About Me

Outside computing I am an Amateur Radio operator. When it comes to speaking languages other than English, I may be best considered a lapsed French speaker as my fluency is not what it once was. I am an avid Science Fiction reader who enjoys works published by Baen. I also advocate the revival in use of UUCP & FidoNet. Occasionally one could consider me a "writer" though my current job tries extremely hard to make me not have any sort of life outside the job. As a consequence of the pressures of my job, my presence on IRC has effectively terminated so reaching me via electronic mail is best.

I served previously as the Head Writer at Erie Looking Productions and presented The Burning Circle, the podcast of Ubuntu Ohio. The podcast had over one hundred episodes during its run though not all are archived. Outside the Ubuntu realm I presented for six years starting in December 2007 LISTen: An Podcast which dealt with more general issues in the realm of library and information science. Both podcasts were rather abruptly terminated as of December 16, 2013.

I am a homeowner nowadays and this is a strange thing. Being landlord to my parents is even stranger still.

I have been an Ubuntu Member since March 15, 2012.
