Previous versions of this blurb were wordy and quite frankly full of crap. This is a much shorter, simpler and honest version.

I'm a parent, a software engineer and an avid weightlifter. I've played Ice Hockey most my life but have just quit to take up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. One day soon I plan to start a boring and very profitable business.

I have lots I want to write about but some combination of perfectionism and busyness prevents me. Pretty much the only post I have is this that I wrote last year on Supply, Demand and Marketplaces.

(Although I'll warn you now, I'm god awful at replying to email, so don't take it personally!)
