Who Do I Think I Am?


From UrbanDictionary.com:

  • a guy/boyfriend that tends to be genuinely perfect, extremely fine, and mind-blowingly amazing.


Hello, I’m Jeff. Here’s some basic info to get you started.

Name: Jeff Balke

Occupation: Owner, CEO, Site Mender; Freelance writer

City of Residence: Houston, TX

Wife: Cathy

Pets: Dogs (Frank, Blue), Cat (Luna)

Hobbies: Music, Photography

My mind is a repository for endless movie quotes, worthless pop cultural trivia and song lyrics. If you live in Houston, I probably know you or know someone you know. It’s because my interests are so diverse not because I’m well known or even particularly interesting.

I was born and raised in Houston and I am unapologetic about its failings. I love travel, have a soft spot for animals and people in need and watch way too much tv. Go me!

About This Website

This website contains not only basic info about me and ways to find me, but the blog I began writing in 2004. In early 2017, I combined what used to be a single page website about myself and a pair of blogs into this one handy dandy website. The archives go back a long way and include a wide range of subjects, much of it even before I began writing freelance. Enjoy!
