About the Thinker


This is me at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado

Aw man.  I hate writing about myself, so here goes nothing.

Welcome to my blog!  I am glad you stopped by to take a look.  I am coming to a point in my life where my day-to-day activities are becoming quite routine.  To prevent the routine from becoming the mundane, I am starting a blog to find creative ways to tell simple, but funny stories.  I promise to remain true to the facts…for the most part.

While I really enjoyed all of the classes I had to take to get my Bachelor’s degree in English, the degree has made getting a job a little difficult.  So, I just finished up my Master’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communications at West Virginia University.  The program is all online, so I am a Mountaineer living in the DMV area.  For those of you who aren’t familiar, that’s the DC, Maryland, Virginia area.  I’ve blogged before, but I hope that this blog will be a little more focused and will thereby present me with an opportunity to keep up on my creative writing skills.

As for my other interests: I am a very outdoorsy person, so you may notice a theme.  I love skiing and pursued my dream to move to Colorado.  I played soccer throughout my youth and now enjoy sharing that passion as a recreational coach.  I have a rescued, yellow lab named Miranda (or familiarly, Mir) who loves accompanying me on walks, hikes, and camping trips.  I have an enormous family.  Combined, I have about 50 cousins and 30 aunts and uncles.  They are all fabulous.

I hope you find some things you like on this page and share it with your friends and family.  Thanks for checking out my page!!
