About Me
Hey yo! For those of you who don't know my name is Phoebus Apollo. I am a Pittsburgh, PA based blogger, web administrator, computer tech, fitness nerd, dad of 3 and once-passed bill writer. I believe in challenging the myths of modern America with nuanced thinking and open minded discourse.

I spent 3 years working in the Portland, OR area for Circuit City and 4 years before that working at Regal Cinemas in downtown Portland, many of you may know me from those places. After moving to Pittsburgh I worked at Sears and Office Depot/OfficeMax. Some of you may have met me via activities in the Pittsburgh area that I host or attend on meetup.com which is awesome. Others may know me from my work with Perverted Justice and their websites @ pjfi.org. A few may even remember that time I founded the alliance Of Sound Mind in Eve Online. My hometown is Greenville, MI where most of my family is located. Currently I enjoy a career with a great local IT company.

This is a home for my personal ideas, projects, fitness logs and other nonsense. Follow me on Facebook for pointless asides and hashtag parades!

Churchill Valley Country Club, a set on Flickr.

I love taking pictures while I walk, and one thing my personal blog misses is having a good way to syndicate those photos everywhere. Well figured out the best solution… use my unloved Flickr account! Via Flickr I’ll be able to post my picture tours on Facebook and here at the same time./ This set is my most recent, the Churchill Valley Country Club, a derelict golf course that I took a nice walk through. From now on expect all my photos to get syndicated like this! For older photo sets, visit my Facebook!

Under Construction

Upgrading my blog so this will be sorta broken linky for a bit. DEALWITIT.JPG.

Edit: I know my Portfolio is down. I’m not job seeking at the moment so I’m going to take some time and make it spiffy before going back up. Most everything else should be up, and written blogs should come soon.
