Raised as a remarkably stationary Navy brat in Virginia, I chased The Grateful Dead and Phish around in the 90s while experimenting with various schools, writing, and strangling noises from a guitar.  I am now married with three children, still in Virginia, and trying to find time to write and play my guitar while I shuttle to and from Washington, D.C. for work as an under-appreciated systems administrator.

Life is pretty good.


This site has been around in various formations on various hosts since before the turn of the century. Let’s check the Wayback machine, shall we?

My first subdomain hosted by my good friend Jble: cdr.flavorj.com (Jble was “flavorj”)

I then setup my own domain: www.rowjimmy.com

Eventually, I moved into the future and installed WordPress. The final version of the site, from the pre-WordPress days is still online here. It’s been ten years since that site was active. You can also find through there a link to my sub-page of essays. Mostly it’s material that I wrote with a couple of guest pieces thrown in. Or you can jump to that stuff directly. (Disclaimer: the writing is kind of weak and the HTML is worse.)

As of February 2015, this site is still using WordPress, now with the Harmonic theme by Automattic.
