Born and raised in Oregon, I've lived most my life on the West Coast, save three years near Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 2008 I moved to California because Oregon was too liberal for me -- or because I lost my previous job and found an electrical design job in Santa Rosa. Recent developments have found me back in Oregon working for another branch of the same company. Also, I am married now.
I live now with my wife, her cats Tawosret and Khufu, and my two birds Nazghûl the World's Most Evil Parakeet and his erstwhile sidekick Pippin Joe. I've spent way too much time reading and watching science fiction. I abuse ellipses with wild abandon.
