My name is Michael Ryann Sanchez but I go with Mike mostly in my life.

Married to an amazing woman and father to two heaven-sent kids and one Chihuahua. I am terrified of flying but love every serving of in-flight apple juice I can get. I’m a self-admitted introvert who values time alone—away from the abomination that is the open-office floor plan.

In his 2004 book “Hackers and Painters,” Paul Graham explains how the word “essay” comes from the French verb “essayer,” which means “to try.” He continues: “[a]n essay, in the original sense, is something you write to figure something out.” And that’s basically what this is all about.
