Oh, hello. I’m Alan Bellows. I founded DamnInteresting.com in 2005 as an outlet for my fondness for writing and my fascination with obscure history. If you’re looking for the individual responsible for most of the writing, editing, fact-checking, artwork, site design, coding, podcast, and music around here, you’ve arrived at the proper person.

As of 2019 I live in Salt Lake City, Utah with my meteorologist/musician wife and our young daughter. My primary profession is web development, and Damn Interesting occupies my after-work-and-weekend time. One fine future day we may have sufficient supporters to make this my full-time job, but in the meantime I am a bit of a bottleneck.

If you have any questions about Damn Interesting that are not addressed on our About Us page, or if you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to drop me a line.
