Welcome to my site, which contains just a small collection of my interests, hobbies, and passions.  Some of my greatest passions are my love for history, languages, communication, writing, and my family, not necessarily in that order.


I have written one novel, have a second one in the works, and am plotting out a third book which I hope will become a series.  My first novel, Jabez: Conceived in Pain, Delivered in Victory, was inspired by a passage from the Bible.

Ireland and the Irish Language

Several years ago, I fell in love with the Irish language after being exposed to it through music.  Those first songs I heard have instilled a passion for the language that is virtually inexplicable.

Winning Support – A Blog that Champions those that Provide Support

Throughout much of my career as a software developer, I have ended up in a support role.  The type of support that I have provided is vastly beyond, “Have you tried turning it off and back on again?”  Instead, I provided support for large-scale software applications and websites.  Too often, computer professionals view Support as “the place where careers go to die”.  I feel that nothing could be farther from the truth, and every now and then, I write about certain challenges I have faced, and how, with a shift in attitude, providing support doesn’t have to be a soul-sucking experience.  Feel free to check out my philosophy at Winning Support.
