I grew up in Atlanta. I miss Southern accents and sweet tea, but otherwise love life in Chicago with my wife and son.
I began writing about the environment after years of camping, gardening, and obsessive recycling. The coal plant I see from my window was also an inspiration.
When not working or gardening, I like to bike, tour the scenic South Side, and learn the names of birds and plants.
I am proud to be the smallest farmer in the Midwest.

My generation is probably the last to grow up writing on typewriters. I still have an heirloom Smith-Corona circa 1913.
The vintage typewriters and accessories shown on this site belong to my friend Georg Sommeregger, a Schreibmaschinen enthusiast in Basel, Switzerland. Click here to see his remarkable collection.
