My self-summary
Let's make this a interesting. I'll tell you 2 stories and you guess which one is true. Deal? Just shoot me a message if there's any confusion and I'll clear up any issues. I am my own customer service department.

Self-summary #1:

Born in Communist Russia in the aftermath of WWII, there were very few choices regarding your future. You could be a farmer, a soldier, or an abandoned strip mall security officer...easy choice. However, it wasn't all fun and prosperity. Russia's freshly bolstered post-war economy was just beginning to blossom into the juggernaut that it is today, and that meant that abandoned strip malls were quickly becoming an endangered species. I did the only thing I could. Fashioned a life-raft from bamboo shoots, sold my monkey, and set sail for Hawaii. I missed. By a lot. I sailed for 4 straight days and smashed straight into the shores of Duluth Harbor to discover a galaxy of abandoned strip malls at my disposal. What a country!


Born in Rochester, MN. Grew up in Owatonna, Tulsa, and Phoenix. Love Phoenix, love the Twin Cities. Own a house in St. Paul, write music, attempt painting, dabble in illustration, frequent cabins, ski down mountains and cross country, bike all over the place, attempt to devise delicious delicacies, and furnish bad jokes at good times. Spend as much time outside as possible.
What I’m doing with my life
#1: Enough of that. I'll skip straight to #2.

#2: Paralegal intending to transition into legal work for an environmental law firm, discovering that St. Paul is pretty kick-ass, adapting my habits to reduce my impact on this planet, seeing how far I can bike in an afternoon, planning short trips around the state, having a whole crap-ton of fun. Yes, a "crap-ton" is an official unit of measurement. Attempting to write compelling lyrics...attempting

The six things I could never do without
great friends
campfires with guitars and microbrews
my bikecyle
creative outlets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot about politics and socioeconomic and sociopolitical issues. Religion in general, spirituality, conflict, existence, the universe...

I definitely lean liberal, but I would not classify myself as a democrat.

I need to go to New Orleans
On a typical Friday night I am
One of my favorite winter activities is to go to my friend's cabin and sit on the porch all night with the wood stove burning and watch deer eat at the feeders. More typically, I would probably go to a good show or hang out with friends over some good microbrews.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a ninja... Maybe not though
You should message me if
You'd like to grab a craft brew and laugh a bit. Or maybe any drink or coffee.
