My self-summary
A somewhat quirky individual with an idealistic mind and heart, complete with a rather creative flair. I take to my activities with an honest, amateur's humor, but nonetheless try rather seriously to succeed at the same time.

Originally from out East, New Jersey to be precise, I particularly enjoy creative writing, the theoretical crafting and playing of games (most of all board games and role-playing games), chilling with animals and nature, and learning about mythology and history. I love to talk with people and learn from them, also hoping they, in turn, can learn from me. If such advice and knowledge is desired, of course.

I am sometimes a bit indecisive, and occasionally sound formal and genteel, but other times can bounce off the walls with glee and excitement. All told, I'm a well-intentioned sort. Just a bit shy and a tad romantic.
What I’m doing with my life
In short, I am a little over a year into owning a Science Fiction/Fantasy/Gaming bookstore. I run it from the afternoon to late hours, and spend the rest of my time writing and designing historical fiction and fantasy novels, as well as board games.

Given any additional time, I might hang out at the nearby Carleton College (my alma mater), enjoying their anime club and folk singing club.

Historical what-ifs
On a typical Friday night I am
Marathoning old Sci Fi and Fantasy television series amongst friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've maybe driven a motor vehicle all of fifteen times in the past ten years since I received a license, the product of there being much more mass transportation back in Jersey. As such am a little afraid to be behind the wheel at any time. I am, however, working to develop a means of conquering these fears and am also learning the mass transit of the land!
