Howdy -

I’m a mid-twenties, early-career, woodshop-esque teacher in an environmental science program in a very progressive therapeutic private school for students with neurological differences. My job involves a little of everything: lesson planning, curriculum building, community outreach, technology literacy (hence this blog), gardening, erecting permanent structures on campus, wearing a tool belt, generally being awesome and so on.

I’m a Texan by way of Virginia (like the original hero in the original western, The Virginian by Owen Wister) with die-hard Boston/Maine family connections and a love of the Pats and BoSox. I graduated from Virginia Tech in ’05 with a degree in English, on the Creative Writing track and have turned what is essentially a hobby into my career. Currently, I’m enrolled at Leslie University in Cambridge, Mass for a Master’s in Ed. degree. Check off the wife and two young children box, and yes, I’m living my dream everyday. I am, and have been, extremely blessed.

I love music. Drive a truck and a Bonnie, which are now named, Bonnie and Clyde by my girl. She's wonderful.

The whiskey, for those asking, does not enter into the driving or teaching. I just like the way it sounds.

Welcome to this marvellous community WhiskeyWaters. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Now, as to Bonnie, is she a Triumph Bonneville?
