I’m a jack of any trade, master of a few. I have a background made up of retail, corporate, theater, medical (two kinds) firearms, music, strategic planning and leadership instruction. I actually wrote a textbook on that last one, although I don’t think it’s used anymore. I’m an analyst for a Very Big Company (VBC, for short), which means I am neither manager nor true employee. Like elsewhere, I am neither fish nor fowl nor good red meat. And I am NOT pork. One thing that any reader should know is that I have a tendency to be a little to lean to the sarcastic at times. Understand that when picking up what I’m throwing down.

My wife, who I call Vesta here (for now, until something better pops into my head) is a food writer, currently working on her own blog and a gluten-free cook book. She is the nerd to my geek. She is Xena to my Spock. Understand that, and you will understand us.

My father is an executive chef and my mother a teacher (retired, thank God) so I am a product of a relatively intense household, if not one completely well thought-out. I spend more time than I should making sure they (my parents, who don’t always understand what’s happening around them) are OK. My in-laws are an equally odd pairing – a former Marine turned FBI agent turned history teacher and another writer. (You think you had an awkward time meeting a significant others’ parents? the Marine-in-law had a FULLY FUNCTIONAL CANNON in the front yard. And we were like 25 years old at the time!)

This is my first (and currently, only) blog, so I’m not sure what else I’m going to bring out into the open. I do know that I’m not tying this to my job in any way, shape or form, and I’d like it to be free of Vesta’s interests as well. Not that she is not welcome to read here, but I don’t think it would be good to exchange readership. My coworkers, on the other hand, will probably never find this. The hats we wear at work are often too different to carry home. In this instance, I believe the reverse would be worse.

So yeah, that’s me in 375 words so far. More to come later, and if you have questions, ask. I might even answer.
