Hello, everyone! Whether you stumbled onto my small slice of internet real estate by accident or you’re someone who is just visiting to get me to shut up, welcome! Happy to have you. I hope you aren’t turned off by my ugly mug up there— though, if you think that’s bad, you should have seen me five years ago.
I’m Eric, and I’m the proprietor of this website. A little about me:
- I’m a writer. That is to say that I scribble things on notebook paper and into word documents enough to consider it a part of my identity, and I read a lot of books. I do possess an English Writing degree from an institution of higher learning, but that’s neither here nor there.
- I’m a lifter, which is to say that I work out anywhere between three and seven days a week and I like to talk about it. I don’t claim to know it all and I won’t try to push anything on anyone, but I do want to be a resource for those of you who may have questions and want quick, easy answers about physical fitness. Let’s face it–if the obesity epidemic wipes out the population as we know it, no one will be left to read my future books, and I’m not about to let that happen.
- I’m an unabashed baseball nut. I watch and listen to games every single day, and I’m sick of keeping my thoughts to myself. I can’t promise to turn you into the next Ted Williams, but I can offer insight and analysis on America’s Pastime that you might find interesting. At any rate, I’ll get the voices out of my head, which is enough for me.
This website is the synthesis of my three passions. I’ll regularly be posting about any combination of the three topics above, whether they’re my own personal work or my reviews of someone else’s. I’m a firm believer that all three can teach us something important about the human condition, or, at the very least, help us cope with the drudgery of everyday life.
If any of that sounds remotely interesting to you, fill out the form below and join in on the fun. No one is paying me to do this–I just want to share my passions and make some connections in this increasingly fractured glob of data we call the internet.
