I currently live in Portland, Oregon with my lovely wife. No, I do not have a beard or tattoos. I'm quite certain that puts me at odds with some local ordinance.
In my spare time, I enjoy indulging in pop culture, training in field first aid/search and rescue, drawing political cartoons and taking long walks up steep hills.
I root the triumph of intellect and romance over brute force and cynicism, and I try to leave things better than I found them.
