Welcome to, an ancient place of power birthed from the remains of an abandoned roman internet super highway. A site so antique, it's everything and nothing at once. Once in a blue moon I might update a thing.

A simple drupal 7 module requiring Commerce and Commerce Order. It demonstrates an early basic understanding of hooks (more complicated ones followed) along with the ability and desire to make simple, elegant solutions to some of drupal's more esoteric problems. In this case, the Commerce module's order form does not make the "company/organization" field required and does not give the option to do so.

A PDF format version of descriptions of various colleges at Eastern Illinois University. This was written during a 6 month internship at EIU, where I worked in the University's publications department. These descriptions appeared in the primary marketing booklet for their "i am eiu." campaign that was rolling out in 2004 and, as of 2016, is still in use today.

Unfortunately in my efforts to rebuild my site, my memory is foggy on this short story, but I believe it came out of a Meetup "Just Write" session challenge.

Another award-winning poem.. submitted in a computer game. Although this one has nothing to do with the game at all.

This is a very, very short screenplay that came from a playwriting class at EIU. It stars two old Ultima Online friends and a fictional talking rat (well, real enough in this story).

This simple, no-frills version of Minesweeper is an android application built, somewhat clumsily, with HTML and JS using HTML tables.

A friend challenged anyone to turn up a Singularity story (machines achieve sentience) that relied on no cliches. I totally misunderstood what he was talking about, but wrote this story anyway. It's about a PI investigating a crime in the not-too-distant future in my hometown, Chicago.

Some amusing graphics and diagrams from, ohh, before you were born.

A chair designed in 3D Studio Max, built off a sketch which was loosely based on some chairs in a Barnes & Noble. Rendered with lighting

The snarky toast I gave at my brother's wedding.

An award-winning poem.... from a computer game. Also, about a computer game. Can you say nerd? I can. I smell it too!
