I’m Ty Mathew Unglebower. Born in Frederick, Maryland, I’m the fifth child (out of six) of Jean and the late Charles Unglebower. (My father died when I was a child.) Excluding time away at college and a brief time afterward I have lived in the same county in Maryland my entire life. I’ve never been married and have no children. (Though with five siblings, I do have a nephew and eleven nieces.)
I graduated from Marietta College in Ohio with a degree in political science, and a theatre arts minor. (I’ve heard all the jokes before.) Since then, I’ve had several jobs before settling on freelance writing a few years ago. Even before that though, writing was always a large part of my life.
Theatre is the other significant part of my life. When not writing, (or looking for writing jobs) I spend most of my free time acting on various community stages. I have thus far appeared in about 30 productions. On occasion I also direct.
I take digital photographs as a hobby. I play the occasional video game. (Poorly.)
I’m a proud introvert, who like most introverts has to counteract a slew of misinterpretations made about me. That I am cold, for example. Aloof, judgmental, shy, or apathetic. In fact I’m none of those things, as my posts on the subject here on my blog will reveal.
What I am is intellectual. Artistic. Spiritual yet not religious, (“there are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio…“). Progressive, conscientious, and passionate.
My musical preferences are eclectic, as is my taste in movies. I prefer audio editions of fiction and written editions of non-fiction. I’ll take email and instant messages over phone conversations most of the time, and Samuel Adams is my beer of choice. (Yuengling being an acceptable second choice.)
And to think this page is the carefully worded “short” version of who I am…
Yet like all people, to truly get to know me you must spend time with me. Or in this case, spend time reading what I write. I hope you’ll stop by the blog on a regular basis and do just that.
