About “PDXpersky”

If you were young at the advent of email, I bet you have a story behind your very personal, potentially embarrassing first address. I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours.

When Twitter came to stay, I picked my handle with similar flippancy, though perhaps it’s a bit more humble. Shepersky is my birth name, short-hand for the far-flung clan that’s anchored me as long as I can remember. And the only home I’ve ever adopted on purpose is Portland, Oregon — airport call sign PDX.

This website used to identify me as just “PDXpersky.” Then suddenly I was actually publishing things, and I thought I’d better put my real name on my online home. But I’m fond of the portmanteau, so the URL stays.
