This is where I write something about myself in third person narrative so it appears as though somebody else is writing about me. You’ll probably yawn at least once while reading it, too.

Gabe is a guy that doesn’t like to talk about himself. He prefers to express himself in odd ways — his blog being one of them. He uses the blog as a way to express himself in whatever way suits him at the time. It also serves as a way for his distant family and friends to see what he’s up to from time to time.

You may have noticed that the word “way” has appeared 4 times on this web page so far. That time made it 5.

Gabriel Tetrault lives in in Washington with his awesome wife, Dawn. After making a bunch of dumb decisions that kept him stuck in California for too long, he finally managed to escape to the Evergreen State. Yay, Gabe!

When he was younger, Gabe played the drums. In high school he and his friend Quinn started a band they named “Legion 3”. It was short-lived, but a lot of fun. He enjoys listening to a fairly wide variety of music, but most of the time he prefers indie and alternative music.

Gabriel likes to travel, with natural surroundings being a favorite destination. This interest in travel has led him to take up hiking and geocaching. While far from being a globe trekker, he’s seen quite a bit of the United States. He prefers to drive to get to where he’s going and looks for places of interest along the way.

Gabriel was into digital photography for awhile. You can find some of his stuff on his Flickr account.

He also spent way too much time & money playing a free (yep, you can spend a lot of $$ on a free game) mobile phone augmented reality game called Ingress. He refuses to link to it out of embarrassment and to hopefully prevent others from falling into the same trap. Besides they changed the game too much since he played it HARDCORE and he’s quite bitter about the entire ordeal.

He started his own computer service company in California and did quite well until he moved to Washington. Now he’s spending a lot of time rebuilding his business clientele. He’ll get there – it just takes time.

Now that Dawn and his kids are all grown and out on their own, he now enjoys playing computer games and hiking in his free time. He also enjoys spending time making gradual improvements to their home.
