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.
My roots are in Massachusetts + 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 (pronouncing the word 'broad' will out me almost instantly).
For two years I went to school in Philadelphia at Drexel University. I don't think the city 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".
In another lifetime I was a drummer, but now I am very far away from my drum kit. In the mean time, I am teaching myself to play guitar. I can lay down a pretty mean Fmaj7.
In another-another lifetime, I was a professional butterfly feeder, or to make it sound slightly more important: Senior Lepidopteran Nutritional Specialist. Those were dark times.
Why am I here in Salt Lake City? Oh right, by some miraculous lapse in bad luck, I landed an art internship at Disney Interactive’s Avalanche Software. I get to see all the incoming concept art and animation work. As part of my application, I was asked who were my three favorite Disney characters. It probably says a lot about me that two of them were villains and one was a robot.
I knew there would be mountains here, but I wasn't prepared for how epic they would be. They aren't just in the distance. They are right there. They push against the city, and the city extends into their slopes. The city itself seems almost inadequate when compared to its surroundings. One only needs to see an Arby's framed by immaculate crystal blue peaks to realize the absurdity of it all.
I recently had my phone & wallet stolen from a planet fitness locker, so that was fun.
I am an aspiring artist, animator, author, notorious doodler, educator, misinformer, and human (almost there)
- Illustration (digital or traditional)
- Playing devil's advocate (or avocado)
- Giving bad advice
- Pretending to know what I'm talking about
People I have been compared too:

Weird Al (It was when I had really long hair, I swear)

Bret from Flight of the Conchords (It was the...um...I'm not sure.)
A frightening amount of Jesus comparisons.
