Living in Philadelphia Boulder.

Fact #3: I play D&D weekly. I'm that guy who impulsively pushes big mysterious red buttons, much to my party's dismay. Somehow I've only killed one teammate so far.

  1. Fact #13: Growing up I snuck downstairs past my bedtime to watch reruns of Star Trek: The Next Generation. This probably explains my love for Earl Grey tea.
  2. Fact #5: I lived in Okinawa Japan for half a year in 2006. Want to become best friends? Find me a bottle of Awamori, the local Sake brew.
  3. Fact #7: Through middle school I assumed I'd be some kind of sketch artist, at least until I was handed a programmable TI-82. That little calculator changed my life.
  4. Fact #3: I play D&D weekly. I'm that guy who impulsively pushes big mysterious red buttons, much to my party's dismay. Somehow I've only killed one teammate so far.
  5. Fact #1: My nickname, Parrots, has absolutly nothing to do with my opinion of the species, despite what some accidental Twitter followers may assume (boy they must be confused by my tweets).
  6. Fact #11: We weren't allowed to own a video game system growing up so my grandmother bought “herself” a NES. She ended up rocking at Super Mario Bros 3.
  7. Fact #17: I watched a lot of anime in my 20s, even going to Otakon for 6 years straight. Unfortunately I haven't found as many series I enjoy as of late.
  8. Fact #19: I enjoy most things table-top: RPGs and board games alike. I go to Gen Con every year with my friends as a pilgrimage to appease the dice gods.
  9. Fact #23: ๐Ÿ‚+๐ŸŒฒ=๐Ÿฅ My only major surgery was in early 2015 when I broke my femur in half, requiring a rod to be permanently installed in my bone. I was (awkwardly) walking just a week later, though.
  10. Fact #29: I was in a music video for a rock band. I was “grocery-guy”, where I carried bags of groceries into an elevator where the drummer was playing. You might say I โ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜Ž โ€ฆ had that role in the bag.
  11. Fact #31: My top 5 video games? In no particular order: Sonic 3 + Knuckles, Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Burnout: Revenge, Horizon Forbidden West.
  12. Fact #37: I proposed to my wife over Twitter. I was sitting across from her at lunch, and I knew she always checked it then. Of course she decided to wait 5 minutes to actually open the damn app.
