Welcome. My name is Michael Miles, and I am a recovering IT consultant living in Chicago.

My interests are varied; I am what my father calls “a jack of all trades.” I have an MA in history and am interested in the theme of American imperialism. I’m an avid science fiction fan and curate the @scififacts Twitter bot. If you follow me for more than a few minutes you will find I love Star Trek. I love to cook and am becoming a better baker.

My latest project is to sharpen my solo sailing skills. I have just acquired my first sloop, a 34′ Beneteau cruiser. It’s a platform for learning navigation, meteorology, and maintenance, not to mention enjoying the Great Lakes.

I will share my posts through my Twitter feed; feel free to follow me. You may use the form below to contact me. Thanks for visiting.
