I never really fit into any one box, but have been a man of various talents and even more hobbies. Sometimes a contradictions of stereotypes in my journey to be true to myself.
I currently live in Portland, OR as a technology project manager, but grew up in rural Oregon and Alaska. I spent all 6 years of my military service overseas, but now consider myself more pacifist than anything else. I love the outdoors, but also love all things geek related and have been a game designer for years. My first RPG I wrote was back in 1986 as a teenager and never stopped. And yes, it's just as cheesy as you'd expect from a teen in the mid 80s lol. I'm also an avid amateur cook and gardener, and huge Seahawks fan. Proponent of civil rights and being kind to each other. See? I don't fit into any stereotypical box, nor would I have it any other way. I think my experiences have given me the opportunity to see a much broader picture of how people are, and that's a true gift.
