I was born in 1969 in St. Louis, Missouri and have lived here all of my life except for a few years during college. I am a grant writer for a 501c3 by trade, and have been hooked on genealogy research for only the past two years, though I have long been interested in my own family history.
In addition to the genealogy blog linked to above (and which you can read a few recent posts from below) I maintain a personal blog
and a site dedicated to the 19th century French author, Victor Hugo
I write poetry and perform locally at open mics
