I like to think of myself as a mix of creativity and practicality.
I love writing, I majored in studio art, and I play bass in a local
band. On the other hand, I'm work as a manager at a local software
developer. Still, I'm an artist at heart, who can appreciate a
spirited debate or just good conversation with a friend about civil
policies, politics, and the like.
I've lived in a few different states throughout my life, from
Georgia to Hawaii (though not necessarily in that order). Recently,
I visited Argentina on business, and I've been known to drop in on
Japan for vacation.
In general, I love being creative and finding new outlets for
creative expression. I love to laugh, but I'm not a fan of comedy.
People can't always quite figure me out -- which neither can I
usually, but I like to think it keeps things interesting.
What I’m doing with my life
For my day job, software development. After hours, it's mostly
writing, editing, and gigging.

The first things people usually notice about me

my desk next to a couple of busts of Spidey & Venom and a
Wonder Woman mug.

The six things I could never do without
In no particular order: art, music, chai tea, the interwebs,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My present, my future, and how to fill in everything in between.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with friends or just taking it easy after the work week.
There's a 50/50 chance you'll find me at the local Starbucks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
You're smart, compassionate, funny, ambitious, like having
philosophical debates about everything and nothing, and are not
fettered by what's expected of you.
Also if you like using words like "fettered" in everyday
