About Me

I live in Sioux Center, IA, with my wife, daughter, son, and cat. My wife says that I can make anything nerdy, which I take as a badge of honor. My nerdy hobbies include:

Distance running

In November 2019 I decided to go for a run. I couldn’t walk the next day, but I was hooked. As of August 2023, I’ve run seven half marathons and three marathons, a marathon upcoming in October.

Tabletop gaming

I’ve played board games with my wife and friends for years, but recently jumped into the deep end of modern hobbyist gaming. My current favorites are Terraforming Mars, anything by Splotter, and the genre of 18xx train games.

As of summer 2023, I’m trying to learn chess.
