life is many things


i am married to the beautiful and understanding cecily barnes, a woman without whom my life would be barren.

i have one child, ethan blake, a little boy who thinks he is the only little boy in the universe. we're working on that.

another child, perhaps a girl, is on the way.


we live in santa cruz, california. this is the kind of place where all the kids grow up surfers, the weather is a consistent 75-85 degrees, and the ocean is always within walking distance. i like it a lot, though we've been here for years and we're still trying to buy our first house; it's an expensive place to live.
