A while back someone suggested that I write a short introduction of myself for people who don’t know me very well. Reading it would give the first-time visitor a few key points of context that could only otherwise be had by wading through a lot of archived posts. This is that introduction.
I live in southeastern Wisconsin (USA). Though I am originally from Los Angeles, I consider Wisconsin my home. I have lived here for many years and I like it, especially in fall. I am 44 years old. I hold a bachelor of science in psychology from Carroll University and a master of arts in educational psychology from Marquette University.
I work in higher education as a professional nerd. Specifically, I am the administrator of the web-based course management system. Teaching people about technology is one of my favorite things to do, so I try to educate students and faculty about the ways in which computers can enhance teaching and learning. I am also generally fascinated with the social implications of internet communication.
When I’m not at my Clark Kent job I’m also a rockin’ bass player, dropping a funk bomb here and there–but especially with the midwest’s premier trip-hop group, Endless Blue.
I like pocket knives, traditional shaving, reading and cooking. I am not religious, I prefer Apple computers and my politics trend liberal. The D is for David.
