Hi, I’m Jeromy. Husband, father, and nerd.

I’m also a full-time freelance graphic designer and a NASM certified personal trainer. I’m a nerd who lifts. I read the comics. I collect the Funko figures. I watch the superhero movies. I play the video games. I hike the trails. And now, I write the blogs.

Up! Up! This is no place to die…

It's been a busy week. Fortunately, I've managed to NOT miss a single workout. But this morning, I was sore and very tired. My discipline and laziness battled for dominance. Laziness almost won. Then my nerd brain took over, and I heard Black Panther's...

I’m Packin’

A Captain America pack, that is. So the special edition Captain America backpack I ordered from Merchoid back in March finally arrived yesterday. HOORAH!! Now I can flaunt its star-spangled awesomeness when I show up to work meetings and coffee shops....
