I am laid back, thoughtful, absurd, reserved, wry, and sometimes mildly entertaining.
I have a bad/good habit of derailing conversations/trains of thought/actual trains
I have recently moved, nay hurtled, to Philadelphia. It'll be my first time living in a big city (Providence or Worcester hardly count). I've lived in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island. I try to keep my New England accent under control, but it's excitable and often leaps out when I'm least expecting it.
I don't think the city has changed me too much. I've gotten a few face tattoos, I've thrown a man off a bridge for no reason, and I've become involved in the illicit trafficking of a new hallucinogenic drug called "Bubblebath".
My education has a curious mixture of science and art. At Providence College I majored in Biology, and then I completed a certificate in Natural Science Illustration at RISD. I'm heading to Philadelphia for a M.S. program in Digital Media at Drexel University.
I am a drummer, though now without a band, and currently 200ish miles away from my drum kit. Unfortunately, my solo drumming career seems to have flat-lined almost immediately. In the mean time, I am teaching myself to play guitar. Height of my skills: silent night.
Life sometimes throws interesting opportunities your way. In 2010 I was hired as a lab technician at UMass Medical in Worcester for the Neurobiology department. My main responsibility was to feed the research specimens…which happened to be butterflies. Yes, for a time, I was a professional butterfly feeder, or to make it sound slightly more important: Senior Lepidopteran Nutritional Specialist.
I am an aspiring artist, author, notorious doodler, educator, misinformer, human (almost there)
