What would you really like to know?
- Who am I? I’m David. I’m a 45-year old father and husband.
- Where am I? I live in Gilbert, Arizona, USA, a southeastern suburb of Phoenix.
- What’s my story, what makes me tick? Social justice. Helping others. I’ve always been a big fan of technology, a technogeek if you will (and even if you won’t). Thus my blog name: technobabble1. My blog was originally for my tech thoughts…then became about my and my son’s adventures in travel hockey…then my son Micah committed suicide this past January (2016), and after a long break away from blogging, I came back to help myself heal–and maybe help others in the process.
- What do I do for work? I am a public appellate attorney working on appeals for parents that have had their rights to their children severed by the superior court or appeals for adults that have been court-ordered to engage in mental health treatment by the court.
- What else do I do, away from home? I am also the public address announcer for Arizona State University’s Men’s and Women’s Club Hockey teams (Men’s since 2009, Women’s starting this Fall–when they start playing). I have also handled PA duties for ASU Women’s Softball and have been a youth hockey scorekeeper for about six years.
- Anything else? I am a strong proponent of youth hockey. I serve on a couple Boards of directors in Arizona ice and inline hockey. I work closely with the Arizona Hockey Union youth hockey organization. I am also a big supporter of youth arts, currently serving as secretary on my son’s high school choir booster board.
- Hobbies? Photography, sports (baseball, hockey and football specifically), science fiction (Doctor Who, Star Trek, Blake’s 7, Battlestar Galactica (2003 series), Fringe, others…), genre TV (comics/superheroes stuff), reading (when I’m not exhausted from legal reading), writing (see last comment), the occasional hike…movies…beef and potatoes…chicken…umm…
I don’t really hold much back. If you have a question, feel free to ask.
Email–only if you ask me really nicely. 🙂
