About Me

My handle is SilentBen and I am anything but here.  I am an Internet Engineer by day and a husband and father of 2 by night … and day, too (those jobs are pretty much 24/7).  I love my job because, unlike many of my previous ones, it makes me think and keeps me on my toes.  I love my family because they keep me both soaring to the clouds and grounded at the same time (as a culture, we have strange metaphors).

In general, I like to try to look at things from a different angle (a bent angle, if you will).  As I tread through life, I think about the things I see, the path I walk, and the world around me and I try to think of the possibilities, the alternatives, all of the different perspectives and potentials.  Some of my ideas are wacky, but I’d like to think that some are also profound.  As they come to mind, I’ll try to remember to share.

On the lighter side, I’m a media nut – I love almost all things movies, music and television (I say almost all because I cannot seem to embrace horror movies, country music, or reality television).  I have also been geeking out recently over all of the comic-based movies.  I’ve never been a die-hard comic book reader and definitely not a collector, but I love the genre.  There is something great about escaping into a world where science-fiction and fantasy can play out in the world with which we are familiar.  So be prepared to see posts from me on these topics as well.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to your feedback.
