After growing up in a small rural town in Western New York I ventured to Boston to become a writer! I went to Emerson College and wrote many things of varying quality, mean while doing other college-y things like drinking heavily and generally fucking around.
It has been a few years since then and I have gone from working at an Apple store (that’s right, my job title used to be “Genius”), to working as an IT guy. Long story short, my employment for the past few years have equated to various levels of technological/psychological therapy performed upon people who are in emotional states lying somewhere in between vein bursting rage and walk-in-front-of-traffic despair. But seriously, it hasn’t been all that bad so far.
Out side of work I spend a lot of my time reading, writing, cooking, drinking, doing yoga, doing nerdy things and generally hanging out. Oh and I spend a fair amount of time doing work as the creative director for the craft beer company I help run.
As far as me as a person goes.... that’s the hard part. I'm definitely a bit of a nerd, that at least is pretty easy to figure out. I like to think that I’m pretty pretty funny, but I'm admittedly biased. I like to think of myself as a generally kind person. I think that I am at my happiest during good long conversations. And I am really getting tired of saying “I” so often. So that's it for now.
Over using my filthy sense of humor
Cooking really good food that tends to look horrible.
Over thinking things.
Just about anything Neil Gaiman, I practically hero-worship that crazy bastard Warren Ellis (especially Transmetropolitan) The Song of Ice and Fire series, William Gibson (of the pantheon of cyberpunk gods), Neil Stephenson, really any good cyberpunk (if you have a recommendation please let me know.) Chuck Palahniuk, Dave Eggers, Hunter S. Thompson... it keeps going
Music: Alkaline Trio, The Cure, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Daft Punk, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, The Misfits
Food: Absolutely anything especially if I haven't tried it before.
Friends (I know it's corny, but true)
My cats (yup, kind of a cat guy)
Things to write with.
Oh and I play D&D sometimes.
