For a brief time I was here, and for a brief time I mattered.
--Harlan Ellison

I've got the "here" part covered...still working on the "mattered" part.

Some basic info...I lived in Montana until I was ten, at which point my family moved to Maryland. Sigh. I have cystic fibrosis (good old DeltaF508) but have been remarkably lucky and healthy. I blew all of my college opportunities when I graduated in '99, and am currently wasting my life in suburban hell, working in a bookstore until I figure out what the fuck to do with my life.

Personally...I'm into all the standard stuff--music, movies, books. I'd like to think that my tastes are a bit broader and more eclectic than most...and it's usually true, although I'm rarely interested in the latest chart-topping summer blockbuster bestelling titles and at times I can can get pretty picky and a wee bit elitist. Although I DO unabashadly enjoy Bugs Bunny, 80's cartoons, and "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure"...no accounting for taste, I suppose.

I think too much; I do too little.

[April 2006 edit: And now I find myself in Atlanta, attending a school that no one has ever heard of called The Creative Circus. Apparently they're going to try and make a real photographer out of me. Wish them luck.]
