I'm an electrical engineer by day; a reader, writer, woodworker, and general do-it-all'er by night; a Christian by heart; a youth leader on the weekends; and a husband... always. I grew up and went to school in Michigan but moved to Ohio after cramming five and a half years of college into six and a half. I really can't complain about my life. My wife is wonderful, my house is old and provides plenty of projects to occupy my time, and my church is great. In my spare time I enjoy writing and reading fan fiction, mostly of the Harry Potter persuasion, although sometimes you'll find me reading Jane Austen or Lord of the Rings fan fiction. I've been building a woodworking shop for years and am finally getting to the point where I can actually build some things.
