How I Got Here
Not by meticulous planning, that's for sure. Don't get me wrong -- I love my schedules and itineraries. Still, the best bits of my life seem to have come about through happenstance.
Nothing against the old alma mater, but I chose to attend Georgia Southern University based solely on two of the programs it had: a linguistics department and a marching band. Shortly after I arrived in 2005, I joined the local chapter of Tau Beta Sigma. My life was all the more fulfilling for it.
Presiding over the TBSigma chapter in 2009 allowed me to meet one particularly cool woman. We made fast friends; the following year I asked her out on a whim. We married in 2019, ending one journey in infinite favor of another.
She asked me to come work in the office of Woodruff Scout Camp in 2011. I wasn't feeling it then, but she talked me into it a year later. It's been the most fulfilling series of jobs (Office Assistant >> Office Manager >> Business Manager) I've had the pleasure of undertaking.
In 2014, a visiting family brought a weary and starving puppy into the camp office. I connected with it instantly and, even though I didn't have a place to keep him for the rest of the summer, opted to take him in when the season ended. He continues to have a permanent spot in my heart (as well as under mine and my wife's bed).
And, as of 2021, I am shooting for the moon by starting up my own proofreading endeavor. It's not quite the full-time novelist position I dream of, but it's a dive in the right direction.
And now you're caught up. Lend me your eyes, or toss me a coin -- every constructive bit helps my spirit or my wallet.
