Valentine’s Day is at our doorstep, and with it a deluge of heart-shaped swag, desperate rose-perfumed poetry, and milk-chocolate tokens of affection. For a “holiday” traditionally associated with the cheerful celebration of romance, Valentine’s Day provokes a lot of cranky feelings.

Can read a trail map, a music score, Chaucer, and a balance sheet. 1 part executive, 1 part entrepreneur, 2 parts geek, and 3 parts Dad.

On amazing days, I produce technical writing that helps people get things done.
