I am a husband. My wife and I have been together since 2001 and married since 2007. She is my rock, and my tether to reality. She is a chiropractor, and an amazing singer. You can find her on her blog, Update My Status.
I am a father. On Valentine’s Day 2009 my wife and I saw those two little lines, and nine months later Bean was born. 6 weeks after he was born I became a stay-at-home-dad, and to say he changed my life would be an understatement. The majority of my updates center around him.
I am a bass player. I’ve been playing since 2004, and my current bass of choice is my Olympic White Fender ’62 re-issue Precision bass with tortoise shell pick guard strung with D’Addario Chrome Flats. I also play a Cort A4FL fretless and an Ibanez SR505. Currently I only play in church twice a month, but am hoping to find some other guys to jam with on a regular basis and maybe even play some local gigs.
I am a bow hunter. I shoot a 2005 Bowtech Allegiance and wear ASAT camo. I just started in 2009, and it consumes my every thought come fall. I also started goose hunting (with a shotgun), and am hoping to add rifle and black powder hunting seasons to my calendar this year. I have yet to get anything with my bow, but know my patience and persistence will pay off.
I am a vegetable gardener. We have a 4’x12′ raised bed in our backyard, and a 30’x60′ community garden plot a short drive away. Last year was our first year, and we are hoping to learn from our successes and failures and bring in a stellar crop this year. I’m also going to try my hand at growing a giant pumpkin for the 2010 season and am hoping to break 100lbs.
I am an IT professional. No, not just a geek, a certified professional. Before going on leave as a SAHD, I was an Information Systems Tech for a local school division. I enjoy working with computers for the most part, and am excellent at what I do. The moniker, Mr. Storage, was given to my by the secretaries at the school I work in. My office/server room is in a storage closet, and that’s what it says on the door. They won’t put my name on it saying it would pose a security risk, though everyone knows it is my office, so I go by Mr. Storage.
I am a pastor-in-training. Since becoming a stay-at-home-dad, I also decided to go back to school to pursue a degree in Biblical and Theological Studies at Canadian Mennonite University. Christian theology is something I am quite passionate about, and while I don’t quite have a solid theology of my own, I’m often trying on new ideas to see how they fit. Once I receive my degree I’m hoping to make a career change from IT Guy to Pastor. Eventually I’ll get my Masters, and hopefully one day a PhD so I can teach.
I have another blog, Twisted Christian, which is where most of my theology related posts go. I typically post them here as well, but I also post my papers from school there.
You can also find me on twitter, @twistedxtian.
I also smile alot. 🙂
