Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

The long version:
I spent four years in the Army, a fair amount of that time at Fort
Sam Houston working as a geospatial intelligence analyst supporting
counter-narcotic and drug interdiction efforts in South America.

I spent most of 2012 working for the Elizabeth Warren campaign in
the Greater Lowell Area, it was probably the most fun I've ever had
at a job.
I had a friend in the Army once describe me as 'a deadly
combination of intelligence and laziness'.
I can solve a Rubik's Cube in about 2 minutes. It's a neat party
Currently I'm pursuing a BS in chemistry at UML and work as an
independent security consultant. I started consulting when I
realized that I was extremely knowledgeable and well versed in the
subject of site security and could start charging people for my
opinion. Two years later I have the beginnings of my own business
and a meager client base. I don't make enough per month just yet to
exclusively live off that as my soul source of income, but with my
GI bill supplementing it it's been an excellent experience so far
that I hope one day to forge into my own actual business.

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's
life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish
fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its
unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially
crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other,
of course, involves orcs." -John Rogers

badass it would be to have a manned colony on Mars also occupy a
lot of my thoughts when my mind wanders. I am equal parts a

the world and humanity as a whole.
