a little about me

I grew up in Arkansas. Since then, I've traveled quite a bit, 44 countries to date. Before entering the internet, I was one of those creative types. I freelanced for NGOs, wore hazmat suits, and rode beat-up African motorcycles. I've eaten Ugandan turkey eggs, buffalo chai, and worse. Being "creative" is not very lucrative, though, so now I just click around on the internet. I'm not a great programmer. But I've been trying to get good at it for the past, oh, 15 years? I'm also not great at languages, but I'm trying to learn Russian.
