This blog has existed in form or another since 2002, when I was building sites with Movable Type . The blog has gone through extended periods of dormancy for various reasons. At some point along the way, I relaunched the blog on the WordPress platform because I liked writing code better for WordPress.
Who am I? By day, I’m the program director for AM 560 WIND, a talk radio station in Chicago. I spend most of my time coaching talent, working with producers to create on-air content, producing creative imaging, developing new strategies to grow and maintain audiences, and collaborating with our sales and marketing teams to create and enhance revenue streams. I’m also a husband and a father. You can read a lot about my wife and her ventures on her sites — here, here, and here.
What’s the blog about? It’s really become a blog about anything that interests me. As you might expect, there’s a lot of politics on the blog. I consider myself a “contrarian conservative” insomuch as I often find myself questioning a lot of the prevailing wisdom within conservative circles. I don’t like to think of myself as a stereotypical conservative, but I suppose that’s for you to decide.
I also am very interested in technology and the way it effects everyday life, particularly through digital and mobile platforms.
You’ll also see a lot of posts and links on this blog about faith and theology, which are also big parts of my life. My formal training in theology has been limited to a minor in college, but it often dominates my reading list. I’m fascinated by the shifts we’re seeing within Christianity as faith communities wrestle with the challenges of postmodernism.
I wrote the code for this WordPress theme by hand, mostly from scratch. I’m sure there a bunch of issues with the code, so if you see a problem, please let me know. Thanks for stopping by.
