My new site

2020 was a rough year, there is no way around it. I don't feel like rehashing it right now. You could check out my other blog to get a full picture but suffice it to say 2020 was a bad bad year. Well every dark hour has its silver lining and 2020 had that too even if at the time I could not see it. Now looking back though I can see that it jolted me from my stupor and gave me the kick in the backside I needed to realize where we as Americans were headed. 2020 was the catalyst for me to question the normative idealogies that I had considered gospel truth for most of my life. I went full vegan (dietary), left the Republican party, divorced myself from the Evangelical church, started caring about the environment and climate change, and became a staunch opponent of the 2nd Amendment.
For several years as I walked this path of significant change and admitting that I had been wrong about so many things I tried to keep it separate from my life as a developer. Then one day while listening to a podcast by The New Evangelicals I realized that I needed to have those uncomfortable conversations. To be real with those around me about who I was and what I was doing in my life. Hiding who I was because I was afraid to have the hard conversations with loved one, family, and maybe even potential employers just did not seem right. So, I rebuilt my portfolio site and tied it into my activism. I am hoping to write regularly about various topics surrounding veganism, non-violent resistance, Universalism, de-construction, and whatever else I feel like I should share with the world wide web.
