My son, Noah, hiding in our Seagrape tree

When I first decided to create, I wanted to write articles mainly about saving money.  As time has flowed, I still enjoy saving money, but I do so in a variety of different ways now that enrich the lives of those around me.

I’m not sure if I truly expected MoneyRhythm to become as popular as it has.  Certain articles have reached near a million lifetime views.  I have to admit I am a bit honored that I could help so many people.  My editing of the site is certainly sporadic at best, but I am improving.

Sometimes in my day to day life I wonder why it was so hard to find certain solutions online.  This site allows me to share my ideas and build upon others.  I love the successful feeling that results from finishing a DIY project.  I particularly like projects that seem “off the beaten track”, i.e., ideas that make you go “Wow!”.  My engineering technical writing skills help me to write pages anyone can follow.


Many of the topics I focus on, such as permaculture, building a food forest, ducks, goats, sandboxes, hypermiling, chickens, saving money, fencing, etc, all seem to share one common thread — Sustainability.

Sustainability is something we need more of in this world, and personally, helps me to live a quiet, healthy, low stress life.  I hope you find a use in the articles at  Please bookmark this site so you can come back to visit one day and see whats changed!
