The long version:
I spent four years in the Army, a fair amount of that time at Fort Sam Houston working as a geospatial intelligence analyst supporting counter-narcotic and drug interdiction efforts in South America. I've done a fair bit a traveling in that four years, several states in the US and four other countries (Kuwait, Iraq, Colombia and Belize).
I spent most of 2012 working for the Elizabeth Warren campaign in the Greater Lowell Area, it was probably the most fun I've ever had at a job.
I had a friend in the Army once describe me as 'a deadly combination of intelligence and laziness'.
I can solve a Rubik's Cube in about 2 minutes. It's a neat party trick.

We will probably not get along if any of the following apply to you:
-You think the Earth is bigger than the Sun, believe in creationism, or you believe the Earth is only 2014 years old because the year is 2014 (this seriously fucking happened...)
-You're deeply religious.
-You're Republican/have a lot of conservative social ideals
