About me

Gender Male
Occupation Writer
Location CA, United States
Introduction I was born in Paris to a military family. I tried the military for a year in college, and ended up training to be an EMT instead. I thought I wanted to be a philosophy major, or an artist. I started my own business to pay for school. I avoided a girl for months, and married her several years later. She was persistent, and she is still the best thing in my life. I browse the 10 cent books at my public library, and buy something almost every time. I am the most obnoxious movie snob. I often daydream that I live one thousand miles from any other human being. I wake up every morning to the grunts, squeals, or screams of my daughter, who is also the best thing in my life.
