My Dog:

My little pal, Ripley — the name was inspired by Ellen Ripley from the Alien films. She was adopted from the Kansas Humane Society on 2018.08.21, at 5 months old.


Special Thanks to:

My good friend Rich Bachman, who I’ve had the pleasure of working with on a number of projects over the years, including this site and the site for Speculative Identities.

Interesting People I Follow:

As social media's wastelands become something I tread with less and less frequency, I thought it would be a good idea to start a running list or directory of people I find interesting or inspiring, and what they are up to in the wider world. Something I can reference, and a way for me to share the work of others.

Check back periodically for updates. Still working through my social media feeds to log people of interest, and I'll make a regular thing of adding new people as they catch my attention.
