Hello, world! I’ve started putting together my site and hope to add additional information here shortly.

But first, I want to give a huge thanks all the people who contributed to making this site possible:
Dreamhost, my excellent web host
WordPress, the creators of a wonderful CMS
Start Bootstrap, who designed this layout
ThemeArt, who developed a WordPress theme around this layout
– Twitter, for providing Bootstrap for free, which this site uses
Glyphicons

And probably many others.
