I'm a poet, a word geek, an eclectic thinker, a polymath, and a small-c conservative (socially liberal, fiscally conservative), who gets frustrated with people who see one aspect of me and think that is the sole (or even primary) focus of my life.

I'm fascinated by how beings and societies construct meaning and communicate it, and the implications of social organization.

I share my house with 3 dogs and my lovely wife Laurel.
