I was born and raised in Midcoast Maine, then went to school in
Potsdam, NY, which was awesome. I took an internship at school and
one in the Oregon Outback (yes, there's a desert in Oregon) playing
with fish and I loved it. When I graduated, I took a job with
growth possibilities near a bunch of my friends in Albany,
About a year into the Albany experiment, my friends started
leaving, many of my coworkers left, the coworkers that were
remaining were getting screamed at for doing our jobs, I found
myself working 60+hour weeks for a solid 4-month period and I grew
tired of living in the sprawling concrete grundle between Boston
and NYC that Albany is. So after another year of soul searching, I
woke up one day, laughed at how I was doing nothing that I wanted
to do aaaaand I quit my job.
And then I moved to Portland, a city that actually has a music
scene, people that smile, and a community identity. Within 2 weeks
I found a job at an engineering startup. Outside of work, I play
out at open mics, run around the woods, and do other stuff.
Other than that, beach and naps and hangin' out with gramma.
