I grew up in Texas, went to UT Austin, and then moved out here to
Seattle for work and friends. Since then I've met quite a few
friends out here, and learned to tolerate the rain.
I'm the kind of guy who colors his hair just because I've never
done it before and then likes it.

do. I am hoping to meet lots of interesting people here, though
