hello, world


I'm Michael, I've got something to say

Hello, world. I'm Michael. Since 1998 I've made this website the home of my writing and photos and experiments. I've posted one of my short stories. I've written about launching a business that failed and I've published a Japanese kanji-study tool I made for my kids. I've written to remember the dead and about being the crap-spattered target of birds. And I've written about creating a custom version of Dungeons and Dragons to play with my kids.

This site runs on a content management system that I wrote. I'm just that. much. of. a. nerd. To paraphrase the immortal Van Halen, "I'm not like this because I have a website, I have a website because I'm like this." I decided on a new domain name in 2019 to amalgamate my personal and professional sites.

Nowadays I find myself writing about my projects and hobbies. Oh, and work—but I don't do that here.
