Uh, um. Well. Yeah. I'm just this guy entity, you know?

Depending on the time of day, my mood, the phase of the moon, and what I had to eat, I am some subset (possibly improper) of the following identifiers: cisgender; male-identified; African-American; Philadelphian via Chicago and Pittsburgh; parent; "'software' 'engineer'"; punk-rock economist; renegade public policy analyst; economic historian; opera fan and aficionado of both baroque and 20th-century classical music; hip-hop head; erstwhile metalhead; informal bartender; data analyst and predictive modeler; not much fun at parties; professional dilettante without portfolio; veteran sysadmin and impromptu IT technician; breakfast chaser par excellence.

My current life does not involve posting much. I've wanted to change that for a while, but haven't yet done what needs to be done. Ah, well. Anyway, I do read journal entries, though.

It is a sin not to know why you are sinning. Pointless sin must be avoided. -- Edward Leamer
