Much of what I know is self-taught, so there are gaps in my knowledge. But, if you ever want to know about medieval Icelandic sagas, I'm your guy.

I was born in California, transplanted to Pittsburgh in the 90's, and moved out here the summer of 2012. I'm still having trouble navigating the roads, which is odd because I could drive through Pittsburgh on instinct. If you've ever been there, you'll know what I mean.
Having been raised by an Arky who made her way to California during the Great Depression and considered FDR the greatest president to ever live, my political views could be described as liberal. Let's just say if you think gays shouldn't be married, think abortion should be made illegal, and consider universal healthcare a communist plot, you should probably just move along.
