You can send email to
I check my personal email once a day;
if you have an urgent issue, please call or text instead (see below).
If I’m gone for more than a day or two,
I ordinarily leave an autoresponse message with details about my vacation
and options for contacting me about time-sensitive matters.
You can call or text me at +1 (219) 649-1767. Due to the volume of robocalls I receive nowadays, I will likely not pick up the phone if I don’t recognize your number, but if you leave a message, I will call you back promptly.
If you are Facebook friends with me and prefer Facebook messages to email, I check them about as often and am okay communicating that way instead. If I am not already your friend on Facebook, please do not try to contact me through Facebook; it will probably be months before I see your message.
I do not generally accept friend requests from people I have not met in person or people whose relationship to me is purely professional.
I gladly accept letters, packages, and other (non-junk) mail. Due to privacy concerns, if you do not already have my address, please send an email or text requesting it and I will be happy to provide it.
