Privilege Notice I have a background of privilege that has created the lens through which I see and write about my life experiences. This background provides importnat context for interpreting my writing. Some items in my portfolio of privilege include:
  • I was born in the United States of America.
  • I have no physcial or mental disabilities.
  • I was raised in a two parent home by two people who, as of July 2022, have been married for over 50 years.
  • I was raised in a middle class house.
  • I am a straight cis-gendered man.
  • I have a marital partner who provides tremendous domestic, emotional, and financial support.
  • I have great credit and no criminal record.
I share this in hopes that it helps readers understand the ways in which my posts may or may not apply to their lives.



I blog semi-regularly about a variety of topics. Most of my blog posts are about my career in tech, my thoughts on engineering culture, my travels, and other topics that interest me.
