I'm Jeff. I was born in Montreal, Canada and grew up in Houston. After getting a film degree at the University of Southern California, I bounced around a bit and moved to the Washington, DC area in 2005. Professionally, I do web development and photography.

I enjoy travel, movies, baseball, genealogy, cheeseburgers, telling stories, and the color purple.

I've been working on my family tree since about 1998. Turns out I'm 1/4 Dutch, 3/8 Romanian, 1/8 Ukrainian, 1/8 Polish, and 1/8 Austrian. Currently, I'm using Geni to build my family tree. If you think you might be connected or have information to share, get in touch. One of my biggest genealogical adventures has been figuring out the origin of my Dutch last name. It's been a fascinating trip through my family history.

Whenever I can spare a few days or weeks, I set off to explore a corner of the world I haven't visited yet. I've been to 50 countries and 39 states:
