Who’s S.J.?

Occasionally I do stuff, and sometimes I share it.

I made my first video when I was in high school as part of a project for a theater class. There were four or five of us who worked together to create the video that was supposed to look kind of like a trailer for a movie we called “The Fish Market Riots of ’82”. Later I went on to make slideshow movies of pictures I and my friends had taken for various young single adult church outings. Later I made some for weddings and other similar events.

More recently I have rekindled my love of photography and making videos, and while I can see that I still have a lot to learn (not to mention some better equipment would help too) it is much easier today to do this in my spare time than ever before. I don’t just want to make videos, and take photos, I want to make good ones that people want to watch and see; hopefully, someday I’ll get there.


I originally created the name Spaldam in a High School English class in 1993 when the topic of the day was “coining words”. I used that alias online for many years until 2017. Since I have been using my initials “S.J.” instead to make it easier to remember and connect with.


SJsAdv.com is my personal website where I share my adventures in life. These include: going off-road, writing for Trailsoffroad.com, Playing Games with my three kids; and the occasional boring technical information. If you’re interested in political or religious content, I have a separate blog for that too.
