About Me

PaulRolfe4Name: Paul Rolfe

Who am I?
If you want to know some of the things I’ve done, you can read below in “Previous Experience”. To know who I am, that’s more difficult. Since this is on a blog, I’ll tell you the relevant things for that.

I write about things going on in my life that I think could be useful to other humans. Those things could range from food, to sports, to the environment, to short stories. I’m a business owner, so I will shamelessly promote them. But I also work for a non-profit and I’ll shamelessly promote that too (renewmo.org).

You’ll also find old blog posts from my iPhone app, CapitolBuddy on this site. That blog has since moved to blog.capitolbuddy.com

My Myers-Briggs personality type is: INTP.
