Alan Bellows, Founder

Oh, hello. I’m Alan Bellows, the founder of I am responsible for the programming, design, final editing, and about half of the writing around here. I also create much of the artwork featured in articles, and I produce the audio (and compose most of the music) for our podcast.

I live in Salt Lake City with my meteorologist/musician wife and our trio of felines. I am a web developer/designer at my day jobs. In my spare time I travel faster than the speed of light, which is to say I do not have any spare time.

Damn Interesting is currently an after-work-and-weekends project for me. My dearest hope and ambition is to one day have enough monthly Damn Interesting supporters that I can afford to quit one of my day jobs and give this project more of my time and attention.

Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
