“I am equal part genius, equal part buffoon.”
I came across that quote years back from one of my favorite musicians Noel Gallagher. I think it describes me best. Genius in many ways, and completely ridiculous in others.
“What else do you want to know?”
This web site is a reboot of what started back in 1998 when I attempted to put my life, and the events of it, on the Internet. Back in those days, it was coding HTML in Notepad on a Pentium I computer with a 233 MHz processor, 32 MB of RAM, a 4 GB hard drive and a 24X CD-ROM drive. Now it is CMS and CSS on computers that have 5GHz multicore processors, 32GB of RAM, 4 TB hard drives and optical drives are a thing of the past.
A lot has changed in those years. My hobbies and interests have come and gone (as they usually do), but some remain including cycling, PC hardware, hot hatchbacks and obscure sports. I’ve worked in various industries including politics, telecom and currently in insurance/financial services. I have a lot of stories to tell from each of these experiences.
I think the purpose of this blog and web site is to tell the stories of the adventures, the day-to-day and everything else in between. We all have a story to tell. This is mine.
