I’m a 24 year old guy currently living with my wife, pets, and 1 year old son in South East Kentucky. SE KY is where I was born, grew up, and met my wife to be.
In general I’m a pretty nerdy guy, over-talkative, and way too contrarian and have far too many hobbies for my own good.
I met the love of my life, Erika, in high school. We dated throughout college and finally tied the knot with a small wedding in Tennessee back in August 2010.
Currently we’re both living in our home town while awaiting the birth of our first child, Alex Jabel Smith.
Growing up my parents always lived very near to my paternal grandparents (directly adjacent for most of my life), and I spent every weekend staying over with my maternal grandparents. As a result I grew up very close to each of them, so much so that I like to think of it as growing up with three dads and three moms.
I’ve got one sister, three years younger than me, no brothers. Despite having virtually nothing in common interest-wise, we’re still pretty close and get along pretty well (exempting the constant sibling bickering).
Not going into it here, there are a handful of aunts, uncles, and cousins that I consider to be almost as close to me as anyone else in my immediate
Right now I live with three cats (Cat, Oscar, and Naruto), my pet Dachshund (Jade), and my wife’s two pet turtles (Turtle and Girl-Turtle).
PC or Mac?:
Right now I’m pretty heavily Mac. The most used machine in my house is probably my Macbook Pro. Couple that with the Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad and I’m pretty fixed in Apple’s corner.
Though I am a pretty big fan of my Desktop PC running Windows 7 and Ubuntu. Likewise I have an Inspiron Notebook and Aspire 1 Netbook both running Windows and Linux distros. The laptops don’t see that much use (mostly niche portable tasks), but that’s less OS preference than portability and power.
At the moment I don’t think it’s fair to force a choice between the two. They both have awesome and unique features.
I’m actually a pretty easy guy to get up with.
My primary email is Chaise smith(no space) [at] gmail [dot] com. I check it excessively, so if your message doesn’t get caught in spam-purgatory I should get it pretty soon.
The fastest, and most reliable, way to get up with me is tweeting @esiach1. I check twitter more frequently than email, and there’s no chance of getting tangled in spam.
My cell number is request-only, but that’s more to stop auto-marketing. If you need it just drop me an email or tweet and I’ll probably get it to you.
I can be found on Skype with that primary email address, but I’m not likely to take requests/accept calls from random numbers, so like the cell it’s a good idea to e-mail or tweet ahead.
