Brian is heading off a mid-life crisis by writing about his journey. He’d like to escape what appears to be a lifelong career in IT and do something more creative, but he’s not quite sure how to make that happen and support his family while doing so. His friends tell him that he’s witty, intelligent, and reasonably well-groomed. He enjoys playing the drums, making people laugh, and smart conversation. He used to be from the west coast, but now he’s from the midwest.
