That bored looking chap to the left? Yep. That’s me. Scary, I know.
Around the web, I’m known as Tysdaddy. Or perhaps TheCheekofGod. Or even by my real name, Brian. You can call me whatever you want. I’ve probably heard it before . . .
I’m a middle-aged, balding, big-eared, unibrow-sportin’ monstrosity with a gentle heart.
Think Shrek . . .
. . . minus the green epidermis.
I’ve been married a few years shy of half my life to a beautiful girl from the Northland. She’s so gorgeous that, using mostly her genes, we managed to create four equally beautiful offspring.
We make our home in the NE corner of the Midwest state of Indiana.
For a living, I make ice cream. Somewhat against my will (to say the least) I left a career in radio several years ago when the station I worked for was sold. I served as operations manager, music & production director, and morning show host for about eight years. Growing up, Casey Kasem was my hero; I never missed an American Top 40 Countdown, and decided early in life that I wanted to “do” radio. My years in radio were fun, and perhaps I’ll return to the airwaves in the future.
I attend classes at Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) where I’m working toward a double degree in English/Creative Writing and Philosophy. I love to learn and strive to expose myself to new things. During a rut phase of my life, a friend suggested I go back to school to finish my degree. Not a day goes by that I’m not grateful for the push. My kids are seeing that learning isn’t just something you do when you’re young.
A few faves, off the top of my head. . .
Minutia: Playing Dungeons & Dragons, reading before bedtime, vanilla coffee (cream & sugar), Guitar Hero with the kids, Camel Turkish Silver.
Well, that’s about enough for now. You’ll figure out more as you read my posts and we engage in conversation. Enjoy the blog and thanks for visiting.
