I am a software engineer working in Minneapolis. I'm the father of six wonderful children and husband of a fantastic wife. (I won't even mention the other children and wives.) (That's a little joke.)
I am (well, I try hard to be) a faithful Roman Catholic.
My politics are pretty conservative.
I like to play chess, though I'm not very good. Feel free to send me a challenge to play at chess.com. (My user name there is MrFishy.)
