Hi. Welcome to my website!  Honestly, I don’t do much here.  It’s a place that I had hoped to use to stay focused by organizing my thoughts, schedule, and goals. I’m not sure it’s done that… but there’s still time.

I started the website on an outdated notion, spurring from the dot com boom, that we had to protect our names. So here I am to defame myself! 😂

It’s my hopes that I will use the website to talk about things that are interesting to me, music, coding, Japan, and yes, benzo dependency, all sprinkled and decorated with random thoughts that don’t fit into any of those categories.

If you’d like to know a bit more about me from a time that I had few accomplishments, but wanted to make myself look good, here is an extended bio that I did not write.
