Nerd-athlete from the flyover states.
I've lived in a bunch of different places, and they've all rubbed off on me. I've got a Chicagoan's love of pizza/beer/sausage, a little Parisian ennui, some New York cultural eclecticism, 4 years of Amherst book learnin', and a rediscovered love of the outdoors here in Portland. I grew up on sci-fi and fantasy, alt rock, and wide open Midwestern spaces. If you get those things, you probably get me. I'm unable to stop myself dancing whenever a Prince song or "Pony" comes on. This is embarrassing 50% of the time; I give a fuck 0% of the time.
There are three things guaranteed to make me happy: playing the drums, being with my friends and family, and Thin Mints. (Honorable mention: the Timbers Army.)
