Hello! My name is Jeffrey Dinsmore. I’m a writer, musician, and creative gentleman of the first order. This website is a collection of the best material I’ve created for various projects and blogs over the years.

If you don’t feel like sifting through all of it but have some time to kill, click on one of the titles in the “From the Vaults” list and see where it takes you. If you see something you like, please pass it along!

Thanks for stopping by!
