About Me

I am a father, husband, writer and freethinker. I earn my living as a UNIX Systems Administrator, although I consider myself a writer.

The tools of my writing trade are my MacBook, MacJournal for blogging, Scrivner for writing projects, and Rapid Weaver for web site design. On my iPad, I used iWriter, Pages, and the WordPress app.

My hobbies are playing guitar and photography. The common tool I use for both of these hobbies is a 13″ MacBook.

For guitar and songwriting, I use a Fender acoustic guitar, a Baltimore strat electric guitar, and a Digitech RP70 Digital Modeling Guitar Processor with Drum Machine. For recording I use my MacBook, POD Studio™ UX recording USB input. For recording and post production, I use my MacBook, Garage Band, and Audacity.

For photography, I use a Sanyo EPC-E2100 14 MegaPixel camera, with 21X optical zoom. For photo editing I use my MacBook, iPhotos, Photoshop, and Aperture.

I am married and have two children, a son who is 17 and a daughter who is 15.

I live in Omaha, Nebraska, USA.

  1. Hello Jay,

    I was pleased to find your Freethinking for Dummies blog this morning as I looked for some good subject material. You will be pleased to know that your blog comes up in the top ten Google results for the key words “free thinking” – pretty impressive, to say the least.

    We actually have several things in common; for one thing, I am definitely a “wanna-be” writer! I love to write but have never been published. I have many full handwritten journals and hundreds and hundreds of pages of articles and blog posts – but for some reason I have never pursued publishing.

    I have never asked anyone this yet, but since our sites seem to share a very similar worldview, it would be fantastic if you would link to it. I have added a link to your blog in the Freethought category; it will appear on every page. I have not yet begun to publicize Search for truth for several reasons, but since this subject is one of my absolute passions, it will be a long-term and substantial blog.

    Thanks and keep on writing!

  2. For many years we spent all our time together and I always considered myself lucky to be your friend, even when we were sabotaging dumpdters together or mowing over rocks in New Hampshire. God has been good to you, after a tough spell to bring you l love and happiness. try not to psit in his face or faithfileld people like me, with every waking breath. I pray for your conversion of heart, and ask Mary, to bring your needs to her son.

    Much love old friend, your stories are good writing Jay, a gift you always had and has grown to a real talent! Bravo!

    Pax et Bonum

    • John,

      I value your friendship. The years we spent together were some of the most enjoyable of my life. I respect your wish to pray for me, and I wouldn’t dissuade you from doing so because I know you do it because you truly care for me. I am happy that your beliefs bring you happiness and peace and I don’t think that there is anything wrong with that. I respect your right to your beliefs, please respect my rights to mine, even if you don’t agree with them.

      Lots of love.

      Jay

  3. Hello,
    I was searching for a divorce support group that is not faith-based and came up empty too. DId you ever find one? I have been to a therapist, who was great, but the money ran out and I think I am ready to be part of a group. I live in LA. Let me know if you know of anything!
