I work designing and building websites (mostly for for nonprofit agencies), help out at a record store, volunteer for a doggy rescue agency, am the webmaster for a local neighborhood society, do flyers for some local bands and/or shows, and have done a handful of guest garage/punk/soul DJ spots at a local bar. In the two spare seconds I have a day, you'll find my nose in a book. Mostly, I'm just a big dork that really likes music, graphic design, and reading everything I can get my hands on.

I collect horror movie posters, propaganda posters, and miscellaneous action figures. I wear hats with ears on them when I'm not in some sort of 20's style hat/headband. I LOVE traveling, but I'm phobic of flying (usually sobbing uncontrollably for a significant portion of the flight - going to Europe with me is especially painful). Pets far outnumber the people living here.
