Everything You Need to Know But Are Afraid to Ask

The Ed Zone and EdHumphries.com is designed by Sean O’Brien and written by Ed Humphries.

How did we get started? During a chilly Patriots tailgate, Sean asked me “If I build you a site, will you keep it decorated?” Over 600 posts and counting later, I’d say we both kept our ends of the bargain.

Sean is a true brother from another mother – a friend of mine from way back when we shared the same nexus point in our paper routes. That was a day a long time ago in a land before the Wi-Fi, iPhones and flying cars we enjoy today. That winding road has led here…

So, I attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst from 1990 to 1994 and graduated with a B.A. in Journalism. I did that because I love to write. Shortly after graduation, I decided I did NOT want to write for a newspaper so I took a job in the financial industry (“one year and I’ll get back to writing”. Famous last words.)  After much too much time ignoring that passion, the call beckoned and this blog was born. Since we started production on this space, I’ve now written and produced two plays – with a third currently in the works.

To paraphrase The Shawshank Redemption – “Get Busy Writing or Get Busy Dying”.
