Born in Nebraska. Grew up in Nebraska, Kansas and South Dakota (the trifecta of suck). Joined the Navy (because they were the branch that couldn’t possibly send me back to the Midwest). Tinkered on nuclear reactors for a bit (the USS San Juan and Submarine NR-1’s, to be specific). Finished my time in the Navy, it was a bad relationship (the feeling was mutual). Went to UConn, studied Journalism and Film Studies, got good grades (gained an extra usage of the word ‘wicked’, as in, “I’m wicked smart”). Currently looking for people to pay me to do things (I’m a trained monkey! Give me my bananas!).
Also, currently rebelling against the tyranny of the subject phrasal constituent in my sentences (and overusing parentheses!).
