Born in Alaska, lived there until my senior year of high school. I AM Northern Exposure. Then Guam. Minister and techie. Then Japan. Graduate student and all-around anthropologist. Now Atlanta. Business Analyst and pinball machine museum proprietor. I am famous in Australia, HUGE in Japan and the sole reason the cattle industry remains profitable. I’ve been everywhere, love everyone and am kind of an intellectual snob. My family is very important to me, and I’m a gamer. Yes – I admit it. I’m a gamer and I like Star Trek. For a decade I had a fauxhawk, am tattooed, and love house and trance music. It’s true. (shhhhh)
