The Obligatory Introduction…

May 28, 2010

So, Hi.  Yet another blog.   Yea me.  So I suppose I should tell you about your humblest of scribes.  I grew up in an average city and I still live there.  I’ve been elsewhere, but I keep ending up back here.  Go figure.  Bought a house and everything.

About my professional life…

I work in an office.  I’m not a drone, but I’m not management either.  I guess you could say I’m in corporate limbo.  I describe my job as a professional problem solver, and a technical troubleshooter.  I directly support about 300 or so end users, and I also develop processes and make new technological tools to aid with those processes.  (Yes, I code, therefore, I am.)  I also play project manager and under-Schmoozer of the Big Wigs.  It’s a charmed career.
I suppose I should note that I am somewhat…  infamous…  for my sarcasm.

About my personal life…

I am married to my best friend, I’ll call her Vesta here for now, look for a more creative moniker as the muse musters by.  We have been married for over three years as of this writing, and had dated for over three years before that.  No marriage is perfect, and I’m sure I’ll touch on that over the life of this blog, but we have a pretty good thing going on here.  If you asked, each of us would say that we are truly happy.  And our marriage is very healthy, trust me.

I shoot things, as the blog title suggests.  My hobbies include firearms, music, medieval recreation, fixing things and photography (although I’m just getting back into that after a long hiatus)  I should say that I really am a jack of all trades, so don’t be surprised if you stumble here one day and see I’ve discovered the joys of underwater basket weaving or some such.  I’m also an ordained minister, so if you’re in Ohio (currently the only state I’ve filed the requisite paperwork in) and need to get hitched, lemme know.

I’m just an average guy in my thirties trying to stand out while keeping my head down and my nose to the grindstone.  Nice to meet ya.
