Some loved ones have recently described my “About the author” page as “terse,” “cold,” and “snooty.”
My intention was just to keep a bit of distance between my personal life and the themes of The Fairbanks Pedestrian. I would generally like not to bring personal details out for show, except where they illustrate my points and touch on the topics of community-building and pedestrian living in Fairbanks.
However, in the interest of showing that I am not a stuffed shirt, a robot, or an alien replicant from beyond the moon, I offer this new author blurb. Enjoy.
