I’ve been thinking a lot about this recently. How do I describe myself? What am I about? What should I say?

Well, I have several answers, some connected and some conflicting. That’s ok, but here’s where we are right now.

I’m an engineer and technologist. I love technology and the opportunity it provides. I want to work towards improving technology, improving access to technology, and improving lives through better technology.

I’m a gamer. I believe games have an incredible ability to create stories and connections. I love reading, and I love RPGs and other games that provide the ultimate “choose your own adventure” stories.

I’m a volunteer and football coach. I love the sport; I love working with high-school kids. I hope I provide life lessons that will help going forward. And, sometimes, I hope I can teach them something about football too.

But more importantly today, I’m a citizen of the USA and the world. I believe in the inherent importance of all people, and I want my work to benefit all, not just those who can afford it. That’s something I look forward to improving on in my life.
