Born and raised in Montana. I actually lived on a farm. We had horses. My best friend in high school had cows and chickens. I bucked bails of hay during the summer. But I dreamed of the big city living.
So, being a pasty white Irish boy, I thought to myself "Hey Dragon (I call my inner monologue Dragon), if there was one place on this planet that is essentially the worst place for someone with your fair skin and propensity for heat stroke to call home, where would that be?" And so Phoenix is where I was off to.
I lived in New Jersey for a couple years, but I've since then made my glorious return to Phoenix (insert rejoicing here). I like to think I lived out there long enough to get the full East Coast experience without abandoning my West Coast mentality. So at least I got that going for me.
I'm a Star Trek loving, Magic the Gathering playing, Reddit browsing bona fide nerd. Ladies, hold on to your panties obviously.
