Hi there. My name is Charles, but you could have probably figured that out from the copyright at the bottom of the page. I live in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and keep myself occupied—aside from work—raising my two little children, radio DJing, working on my old house, and volunteeering at St. Luke's.
Me, at Trinity Church in Niles, Michigan, right after my confirmation.
I would love to say something cool, like, that the Derpsite! began as some kind of social experiment or that I developed my webpage in an attempt to solve world hunger, but that's not the case. The site seems to exist to give me a place to put things online that I think others might find useful—pictures and history and software and such. Sometimes this whole thing feels like a big inside joke.
I'm married to Laura Jorgensen, er, Mercadal. Our two children are named Violet and Eleanor.
In the past, I've had such auspicious jobs as a Macintosh repair technician at Western Michigan University, a library page at the Kalamazoo Public Library, and a journalist at Business Review Western Michigan.
I have an ENTJ personality, or so I've been lead to believe.
