About this site

I started this blog during the summer of 2020. Sequestered away by the pandemic with my wife and months-old daughter, I turned to books, writing, and making music. Much of this blog is the byproduct of my working out thoughts, feelings, and ideas spurred on while living and working in quarantine.

All this writing forced me to consider what it is I really care about. Put simply, I'm curious about how we convince, rationalize, and negotiate ourselves towards the choices and decisions we make. And while the outcomes are important, I'm fascinated by the way we get there.

Communication is a tricky thing. The words we use to understand ourselves and others are a mix of superfluous, meaningful, contradictory, eloquent, and profane. Words have the power to run wild like a garden.
