I'm a Rural Mail Carrier who loves his job and takes it seriously. A geek who devours sci-fi and Shakespere. I build my own computers for the same reason I played with legos as a kid: it's fun! I'm with a wonderful woman, but am comfortable with the quietness of being alone. I let my hair grow out long only so I can cut it off and donate it to charity. I let life happen and roll with the punches, because I know no matter what I'm dead in the end.
How I came to live in Lawrence
I was born and raised in nearby Baldwin City. Moved to Topeka, then back to Baldwin. Fell in love with my first wife and moved to Lawrence. Lost my job, then moved to Georgia. In Georgia I lost many jobs and my wife, so I moved back to Baldwin. I met my current love, and then moved back to Lawrence, which has always been home to me.

Favorite Web sites
Anything except for country music after the rise of Garth Brooks, hip-hop after the rise of gansta rap, and any singer that relies on Auto-tune to hide the fact that they can't sing.
