My primary passions are music, video games (making them, playing them, studying them...), and 3D modeling. I play bass, have very diverse and somewhat eclectic musical tastes, and I regularly attend concerts.
I hate being stationary for long periods of time. I regularly go on random walks or drives around Atlanta whenever I have time to spare.
I've never been known to turn down an opportunity to go on a road trip. My favorite so far was a road trip to Dallas, TX with some friends to see Iron Maiden and Dream Theater.
I hope to one day bicycle to California, either by my own effort or by being tied to the back of a Volkswagen van.

I have a sizeable hot sauce collection, have several chili awards, and probably eat more yogurt than the rest of Atlanta combined.
