I'm a Midwestern-born, former Deep South resident, who now resides in San Francisco, while trekking down to Mountain View most weekdays for work. I also don't know the meaning of relaxation, apparently, as I tend to pack my weekday evenings to the brim, usually with some sort of athletic endeavor. I've been a figure skater in some capacity since I was 7, and have recently been giving tumbling/trampoline, weight lifting, and ballet a go.
Stories live in my head and often make their way onto paper (more accurately, Scrivener) during my free time. Naturally, I decided to pursue and nurture my creative inclinations by going to law school.
Wait...that doesn't sound right. At any rate, that's what I did. After graduation, I decided I still wanted to pursue writing, became a tech journalist for a few years, then found my way back into the legal field as an editor of attorney-produced website content. I like my job and I enjoy the people I work with. Now, if they'd only relocate 50 miles north so I'd never have to use Caltrain again.
A few years back, I finally came to grips with the realization that I was transgender (ftm) as well. Then came the acknowledgement that I was gay (and that transguys even could be gay...thanks, oblivious Midwestern upbringing for not cluing me in on that one!). I'm in the process of medically transitioning at this point and couldn't be happier. I have a great group of friends, am out as trans in a supportive work environment, and am feeling comfortable in my own skin for the first time in my life. Now I just need to find a guy to share it with. In the meantime, I'm open to making new friends as well. If you think we might click on any level, drop me a line.
