My self-summary
Writer, lefter, hiker, parent. Good words and bad puns. Indie flicks and Oxford commas. I want to want as badly as I want to be wanted.

What I value: honesty, kindness, wit, passion, and parentheses (it's kind of a problem).
What I’m doing with my life
Writing, which means I actually found a job doing what I love.

Paycheck-less writing: poetry, scripting, blogging, satire, and a recent stab at macabre YA

I spend the rest of my hours lost in agnostic wonder. I know you know nothing because we all know nothing; it's the one thing we all know... you know?

I'm also militantly semi-serious about self-improvement, capable of passionate laziness (it's an art), and 98.F% sure I don't understand percentages.
