It feels a little strange to write this, especially given that I've always maintained that it's hardest to write about onesself. Anyway, who I am really depends upon who you are and where we're standing at a particular moment. This way, I can define myself in relation to you.
So let's see: some basics. I was born on December 7, 1974. I'm 30 years old, but I look a lot younger and am often mistaken for a college student (and even sometimes a high school student). I will probably get carded to buy alcohol until I'm 90. Some people tell me that's a good thing. I'll let you know when I agree.
I'm originally from New York. Yes, that New York. I was born in Manhattan and grew up in Rockland County, which is around 25 miles northwest of what we like to call "the city." Everyone from Rockland County will tell you that they're from Rockland County, rather than telling you a specific city or town name. (For the record, I'm from the town of Spring Valley, zip code 10977, area code 845, formerly area code 914.) I currently live in Kalamazoo, Michigan. (Town motto: "Yes, there really is a Kalamazoo!") Before moving here, I lived in College Park, Maryland, where I was in graduate school toiling away to earn my MA and drinking more than I probably should have. Before that, I lived in Buffalo, New York, where I went to college and also drank more than I probably should have.
I am currently and gainfully employed as a computer tech-sort of person for a county-wide high school arts program. I'm sort of the computer guy. I also freelance for some of the local papers. I'm a bit of a writer, and have done various freelance writing and editing gigs around town. I'm also a bit of a documentary producer, and so far I have one to my credit. I'm also a percussionist, and have played on stage and in the studio with several bands in several genres. If you're looking for a writer, video editor, musician, IT assistant, or someone to sit around and look cool, I am indeed for hire.
