I live in a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota. I am married to mia_mcdavid. We have two sons with autistic-spectrum disabilities, which overshadows all aspects of our lives.
During the day (and occasional evenings and weekends) I work as a Database Administrator. I have been doing computer software jobs for most of my adult life.
I have a variety of interests and concerns, some quite obscure. Few readers will care about all of them, and I freely use LJ-cuts so as not to intrude too much on their space. I wish more LJ users would do the same, especially when writing about politics.
