Hello there! I’m Dino. Welcome to Above the Earth and Seas.

Above the Earth and Seas is my second attempt at a photo/micro blog. I burned out on my first attempt when I tried to do too much. This time around I’ll focus on just sharing photos.

This is basically another attempt at trying to replace social media with a personal website. So something like an Instagram replacement. Whether it works or not, only time will tell.

About Me

I’m a .NET software developer. I live in Texas with my beautiful wife, Coney, and my two sons, Davin and Caleb. I love playing video games and board games. I love reading books and listening to rock music. I love cars and basketball. I love taking photos of the sky (hence the blog name). And last but not least, I try to live life following the motto: Ad majorem Dei gloriam.


If you need to get in touch with me, you can find me on micro.blog and reply to my posts there. Or, a probably quicker option is to leave me a message.

If you are a Facebook friend, you can message me there. Or if you are on Mastodon, you can message me there as well; my fediverse handle is @dino@writing.exchange.

Lastly, you can also send me an email at dino.journal [at] protonmail.com. I’ll try to get back to you as soon as I can.

Elsewhere on the Web

  • Dev Blog - my old dev blog where I wrote about my experiences as a .NET software developer.
  • Dino’s Journal - one part bullet journal, one part personal blog and one part digital garden. It is a place where I write about about topics that I’m interested in.
  • Now Listening to… - a music blog where I share music that I’m listening to right now.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day.
