I'm a writer excited to have finished his MFA program in San Francisco and to have moved back to the east coast. I don't yet know what awaits me in the future, but I hope to be teaching Creative Wrting workshops, and to have my fiction and non-fiction published in multiple venues. I'm currently at work on a historical fantasy novel set in early19th century Scotland, and sending my work out to multiple publications, and that's what's consuming most of my thoughts at the moment.
I'm a quietly passionate, sensitive misanthrope, a cynical idealist, and a childlike dreamer with an over-active imagination. I am also something of an amateur artist, paleontologist, and theologian. I love movies, music, literature, history, paleontology, fantasy, science fiction, philosophy, metaphysics, nature, libraries, museums, art, and zoos. I try not to judge people and accept them as they are.
I am a believing but somewhat progressive Catholic. I suspect this will be the biggest turn-off to most people viewing this profile. Just to be perfectly clear: I am conservative only in a fiscal sense, I'm sex-positive, I'm far from anti-gay, and I have no interest in actively converting anyone to my religion by any means other than providing a good example. I also listen to death metal, read Tarot cards, and have forgotten more about dinosaurs and paleontology than most people ever care to learn (on an interesting side note, virtually all of the great paleontologists were themselves believing christians). I certainly don't take my beliefs for granted, and have given a lot of thought as to what I believe in, why I believe in it, and most importantly, why it is worth believing in.
I am mostly apolitical. Both the far left and the far right make me ill.
I don't believe in astrology in the slightest. It's totally fine with me if you do, of course, but I insist that knowing my sun and moon signs won't help you understand me any better.
If you'd like a category that does describe me slightly better, then my MBTI type is INFP, and my ennegram is type 4 (or 9, depending on the test).
I am enigmatic, intense, and incorruptible
