Denton, Texas, United States
I was born in Texas back...well, back longer than I really care to admit...in Corpus Christi, down on the coast. It was an amazing place to live for about three or four days; the rest of the eighteen years I spent there was significantly less fun, but I learned a lot of valuable lessons in that time. Still, when the end of the last millennium was rushing towards us, I figured it was time for me to expand my horizons and I set out for Denton, the home of happiness! Being tone deaf, I decided to study at one of the country's leading music schools: the University of North Texas. Over the course of the next thirteen years I was a shiftless bum and a perennial student, spending time in Buffalo, NY, and returning home for a bit, but always returning to Denton and the life I'd built there. I finally tucked four degrees under my belt and made myself a fixture of North Texas nerd life, generally being surly and old at everyone.
And for most of all that time, since back when I was a child, I've written. I love it and its one of the most important things in my life, so I've decided to bite the bullet and share it with the rest of the world. I just hope the rest of the world is ready for what goes on behind my eyes.
Blacksmithing: Recently, some friends and I have taken up the time-honored art of attacking dangerously hot metal with hammers. I'm not very good at it, but it's been fun.
Anime (Japanese Animation): I've liked anime since I was in high school...I liked it so much, I helped to found a national co-ed fraternity for like-minded individuals. Believe it or not, I was even the vice-president of the Alpha Chapter for a while in college.
Roleplaying: I used to be big into Dungeons & Dragons, but in the big 3.5/4e split I ended up siding with Pathfinder. Either way, it's a blast tromping through my imagination with some friends.
LARPing: Sometimes, I just want to dress up in medieval clothing and prance around hitting my friends with sticks. We definitely have a lot more fun than the people who tell us we look like idiots.
