About Me

Hi all, my name is Kent David Kelly. I am a devout old school gaming fan, author, husband, father, artist, poet, researcher, designer, editor, consultant, and cat wrangler.

For 22 years I have worked in the field of judicial consulting, assisting courts with data analysis, judicial fairness, pandemic safety, public outreach, security, technology, training, and access to justice. By night I stalk the streets dressed up as a bat, sulking atop stone gargoyles in between bouts of leaping down whilst grimacing and punching criminals in the face.
