nerdperson! Also I have an open slot in my weekly game.
I'm also a bit of an MST3k nut. There's something really enjoyable

actual science. Quantum Ethernet? Alcubierre drives? Yes please!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

I'm a dyed in the wool metal head, but I do enjoy a wide variety of
music. It's always fun to through some funk, electro or classical
