About Me

Living in and writing from rural Connecticut, where if the wind is right you can smell cow manure from farms both near and far.

Here’s a little timeline to get you caught up:

2011: living in NYC; became an at-home dad when our first son, Nolan, is born; moved to CT

2012-13: enrolled Nolan in day care while I worked, hoping it’d lead to full-time position; no dice

2014: our second son, Graham, is born; working at an alternative education program hoping it’d lead to a full-time position; no dice

2016: our third son, Austin, is born; full-time at-home dad

2018-present: at-home dad; part-time work at a local package store; part-time work for Bark Technologies.
