The Who, the What, and the Why.

Welcome, fellow internauts. My name is Christophe (Yes, like in the movie Frozen). I am a 6’3” homo sapiens living in the Pacific Northwest (until I decide to move, as sapiens tend to do). I have three passions: history, creative writing, and fitness. Hence the title of my newsletter: Keyboards, Dumbbells, and Vikings. Through this newsletter, I intend to share what I learn as I live and breathe these topics in my daily life. What my three passions offer are three disparate ways of exploring the human experience, both of my own and of others. I sincerely hope you find value in what I write and share, and I invite you to join me in this exploration by leaving comments, sparking discussions, and otherwise engaging with what I write meaningfully and, perhaps, allowing it to inspire more careful reflection within yourself on what it means to be human.
