I can be wildly offensive, or insightful and compassionate... often at the same time. Life is just too serious to be taken seriously.
I'm also one of those creatives. I been writing and telling jokes since I was a kid, but I've gotten into music over the better part of the last decade, and it's the most addictive thing I can imagine. I'm teaching myself to play punk songs on a banjo.
Family is important to me. My mom and my brother are two of my best friends. Don't make it weird. ;)
While on the subject of weird family, I've been divorced since 2006. No kids though, so there's that.
In the end, this is a lot of gobbledygook cobbled together to try and entice you to want to get to know me, but there's more to me than what I can fit on a website. I'm funny and smart and I've seen some shit. Despite it all... I think I turned out okay.
I hate day jobs, but I am pretty happy with my mild mannered alter ego right now. I'm working in video games again, and though the hours are long I love it!
