The tagline I've been using lately is recovering journalist, aspiring academic. I used to report on the Zombie Apocalypse, plague and pestilence, and other End of Days -related beats for the largest news-gathering organization in the belly of the beast down the street from the Black Mecca, also known as Washington, DC.
Originally from Atlanta, I've developed a taste for table cabernet in France, learned to dance to djembe drums in Senegal, and drank from the Nile without getting dysentery. Though I have had malaria. Thank god for Nigerian doctors.
