I make no claim to being the second coming of Beau Brummel. I only want to look my best at all times and surround myself with beautiful things & beautiful people. Wherever there are strange things afoot, it's likely I'm involved in some way. If you've read something of mine, it's secretly an incantation to summon something cthonic within you. Did you show up to something I've helped put together? Then, I apologize for those dreams you've been having on and off. I also think I may owe Bacchus and Jesus money, but that's neither here nor there.
I'm a political fellow, interested in the politics of everyday life and its various theoretical applications. I believe that, just as in life, politics should be passionate, adventurous and well-informed. I try to create a better world, a beautiful fable for everyone free of the many worries of the various dangers inherent in our world society.
I consider myself a renaissance man/polymath and a dandy-bohemian slightly-anachronistic sort. I've got a bit of an ego, but I do try to keep it in check. I'm someone who has their heart in the present, mind in the future, and soul in the past. I'm a metaphysical time-traveling raconteur, powered by Tesla coils and condensed milk.
If I have to, I will die for what I believe in and fight to the death for it. I'm a fiery sort of chap, in case you haven't noticed, with an eccentric gait and a mischievous glare. I specialize in impressive facial hair, impromptu poetry, horrible yet witty puns, situations involving large amounts of luck, charismatic speeches, bouts of fisticuffs, long-term large projects and humanly-impossible facial expressions.
I try my best to be something between a modern day alchemist (turning all lead into gold), a reincarnation of Lord Byron (keep me away from Greece), and Your Resident Baron Samedi (I'm what was used to spike your punch at the party). I am a living myth, a player character wanting to make sure you'll never feel like a NPC ever again. Together, we can build a new world out of the ruins of the old full of wonder and adventure.
"Greybeards" of SF/F.
Also, since I get asked way too often, yes, I do work a high-paying, low-stress flexible yet stable job and all that jazz if your fetish is financial security for some reason.
Don't worry, I'm also really good at being self-aware.
Probably also my facial expressions and the outfits I wear and my ability to talk about anything. They likely also notice I travel somewhere at least once a month. Next trip: Rome and Florence in Italy. Join me in my travels?
