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.
