Hi and welcome! I live in the Midwest with my wife, Rachel, our three kids, and our husky-shepherd, Lana. I collect comic books and I used to run a lot. That’s back when a good night’s sleep was taken for granted. I think Donkey Kong and tonberries are awesome. I’ve lived in Chicago and Scotland and as a grown adult I still look up to Spider-Man.
