Attended schools you've probably never heard of but were good for the major I was in, like the University of Idaho for mining engineering (yes, that's right)

Story
Tagline
Husband and dad, part-time basketball and soccer player/spectator with my son. Like: chess, blues guitar, post-punk, anything that explores the space/time continuum...and sunglasses
Introduction
Life-long student of almost everything (it's a huge world and so hard to focus, you know?).   I've never been able to make the distinction between science & art, so after I got my engineering degree I went into a branch of financial PR, then got an MBA.  Yes, I work on Wall Street but it's just an address.  

I believe in God (she's been good to me), country and the occasional benefits of comfort food.

I'm on G+ to have fun & create stuff -- if you want serious go see me on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Bragging rights
Riding the subway every day reminds me of my first job working in an underground mine. Sometimes it even smells the same. Marathon commuter (4hrs/day) on Metro North but I get a lot of reading done, sometimes catch up on sleep -- good thing I like trains. I found a way to get paid for writing: work for an agency in NYC. Everything else is kind of like a hobby (when I have the time).
