About me

Gender MALE
Industry Transportation
Location Boston, MA, United States
Introduction I specialize in philosophical vivisection. I like that. I need business cards that read: Edwin Allen, philosophical vivisectionist. I should probably be always serious though, if I really wanted to try and pull that off. People pay for all kinds of things in this wild world. And somebody's gonna have to do the post mortem.
Interests Dancing in the Mindfields, Playing in the Sandboxes, cogito, drinking pangalactic gargleblasters, etc.
