Related, I really am a horrific amalgam of two children, blended into a chimeric caricature, masquerading as an adult human male. So you gotta be cool with that.
I grew up in a hilly Massachusetts farm town; picturesque, rustic and rural. I attended a performing arts high school, where I dedicated myself to the pursuits of funk dancing and improv comedy. However, my first real taste of the outside world was when I went to school and got my BS in psychology. Brains be cray, yo.
Like many psych majors, I was captured by a cybernetically enhanced militia of neuro-slavers while attempting to cross the scorching wastelands of the mega dunes. After much uneducated and uninformed debate over exactly how much my frontal lobe was worth, they transported me west as a conscripted laborer. I spent each day underground, digging in the grueling tech-mines for the Silicon warlords in the area known simply as "The Valley" ... until I escaped! Now I am wandering the world, searching for my destiny, something like that blah blah "that's where you come in," yadda yadda.
I prefer stouts to IPAs. I enjoy watching terrible movies. I like to ride my bike around. I also like to ride my motorbike around; its name is Rhodopsin. I make jokes that will either be the best thing you've heard or the worst, and I cannot stop myself from making them. I also like to create spontaneous little stories about people I don't know or things happening around me. I've been told it's entertaining.
I'm goofy, a cheerleader for the sciences, technology, and hot chocolate (+/- vodka). I'm an extrovert when you see me, and introvert when you don't.
Gaming and A/V editing are my primary hobbies these days. I also have been writin' and readin', hootin' and hollarin', etc.
I was also the events manager for the local gaming club, The South Bay Button Mashers. We run local events to help bring other gamers together and make new friends, and we raise money for charity, run tournaments, and run booths and stations at larger events like Big Wow and Fanime. I've semi-retired from that role after working it for a little over a year, and now just enjoy the group as a "senior member"
