I'm a long-time resident of Windsor, CT living with Cheryl, who I've known since first grade and been in love with since senior year in high school. We've raised three children: Aaron, Kay and Rose. Raised three children? That's a vast understatement. Together, these four people have given me experiences and insights which have continually redefined how I see myself and the world I live in.
Job-wise, I'm a retired mechanical engineering who designed and developed a specific type of machine used in an aircraft system which few are aware of, but all air travelers depend on. At its best, the job was creative and rewarding and payed the bills. At its worst, it’s something I'm grateful to never have to do again. And now I get to write every day!
So call me Chris. I use he/him pronouns. I'm a cis-gendered heterosexual white upper-middle class male who respects the power of labels, the freedom of no one to be limited by them, and my own evolving ignorance.
