My name’s George Kelly.
I was born in Washington, D.C. and raised just outside the Beltway.
In the mid-1990s, I earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from Bowie State University before moving to the Bay Area.
These days, I work as a breaking-news staff writer/reporter for the East Bay Times, a Bay Area News Group daily paper. Because the Times is owned by Alden Global Capital, I’m also a member of the East Bay unit of Pacific Media Workers Guild Local 39521.
The Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine makes it easier to believe that there’s been a blog at this Web address, off and on, since late May 2000.
I shelter wayward musical instruments, including a digital piano, three guitars, two MIDI keyboards, multiple harmonicas, a violin and a mandolin, as well as a few software programs that let me use them to perform unspeakable acts under color of exercising creativity, whimsy, curiosity and ego.
I spend as much time around my spouse, A., and our seven-ish-year-old cat, Begum, as either will allow.
