I’m from Iowa.

I spent 9 years in the Army Reserves (deployed twice) and I liked it.

I hold an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from the University of Minnesota.

Now, I work a nice little 9 to 5 and fill the rest of my time writing, reading, hanging out with my wife and our poodle, watching too much TV, and doing crossfit.

Here I will complain about the small grievances of my generally charmed life.
