Hi! My name is Erik and I'm a writer, artist and corporate drone (along with about a zillion other -ers and -ists. Seriously, a verbal self-portrait? Words are insufficient).
I live in Boulder County, though not in Boulder proper (so you know I'm grounded). In my free time... well, if I had any free time, I enjoy daddying (totally a word), geocaching, cooking, writing, and designing toys. I don't do World of Warcraft, but I'm an avid Kingdom of Loathing player. And I'm not as pretentious in real life as I seem here. Seriously.
I love to travel and I've lived all over the United States. Coast to coast, north to south. It's not that I'm on the run from creditors or in the witness protection program, it's just life happens... you know? Consequentially I have a subtle, strange accent with a slight southern drawl spiked with Canadian vowel sounds. Y'all want to go oout in the boout? It's not that bad (disclaimer: it's pretty close). When I was taking Japanese the teacher wanted to know why I spoke Japanese with a French accent. I was answerless.
I am easily distract-ooh!, hyphen-prone, and former-nomad.
