30 years of age, systems administrator, baseball fan, previously the lead singer of a loud rock band, and generally fun to hang around with (or so I've been told.)
Lately I've been podcasting, practicing my guitar, training a miniature dachshund, and working on small instrumental songs with electric guitars and bizarre synthesizers.
Remembering band names, song titles, and album titles. (A completely useless skill.)
Learning how to play songs I hear.
Recalling useless information I found on the internet.

-as horrible as it is to say this, my iPhone
-Baltimore, in general

What I would do if I had a TARDIS?
Or at Oriole Park. (Perks of working for a college: Cheap Friday Night seats!)
I was a Jungle Cruise skipper.
I sank one of the boats.
