Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1971, I am the second youngest of six kids brought up in a family of modest means, but rich with humor, strong work ethic, and a solid foundation of values and morals.
I work too much, but I am never too tired for my son, who is 5, or my twin daughters, who are 4. They and my wife of over 10 years are my inspiration for nearly everything. With them as my motivation, and caffeine pills as my secret weapon, I am a spark plug and a firecracker rolled into one–potentially explosive, but sure to entertain.
This blog began years ago as my opportunity to rant, rave, and carry on about whatever I found entertaining. Now, it is taking a turn to a more controversial topic–politics. Why? Because our country is a mess, because I’ve got ideas that are mostly crackpot that might actually work, and because I don’t give a damn if you are not supposed to start a sentence with the word “because.”
Do I have political aspirations? You decide, and then let me know if I am just nuts enough to make things interesting.
