Hi! My name is Treesong. If you’re reading this, you probably already know something about me. I’m a father, husband, author, talk radio host, and Real-Life Superhero. I write fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, mostly about the climate.

I also have a “nonstandard” name.

My full legal name is Treesong. It’s a single-word first name with no last name. I had my name legally changed to Treesong in 2002. If you want the short version of the story behind this name, check out my Origin Story page. It’s a Real-Life Superhero origin story, so be prepared for some cheesy framing.

This “nonstandard” name has led to a lot of strange experiences that make for interesting stories. I’m writing this post about my name because I have a new story to tell, but first allow me to share some of the classic name-related tales from the Adventures of Treesong.

A very merry unbirthday to you! My birthday is coming up on May 19. I’m not having my usual big party this year because spreading a deadly virus isn’t my idea of a good time. Therefore, all celebrations that involve friends will have to take place online this year.

I invite you to celebrate with me online! In lieu of gifts, here are a few suggestions for how you can celebrate my birthday with me.
