I am a musician, a software engineer, a writer, and a dabbler at just about everything and anything. I have a particular passion for tools of creativity and the way the physical experience alters the resulting work be it the feel of a particular guitar, fountain pen, keyboard, or, obviously, a typewriter. I don't have a huge typewriter collection but I always have my eyes open for new machines that strike my fancy. I have a weakness for Olivettis. My first typewriter was a Remington Quiet-Riter that I bought in the fourth grade so I could be like H. G. Wells. Over the years I have owned a few machines but now that I have the space to indulge, I have a few more. I live in rural Minnesota with my wife, our four rescue dogs, and two cats.
