It's hard to distill yourself down to a handful of words but I'll try to hit the high points. I grew up in Maine and went to college in Boston. I served in the Army for 4 years and currently work as a DoD contractor in the IT field. I finished a Master's Degree this past spring. I subscribe to the Washington Post, but often don't read it. Although, I would give them my money for nothing in return, because I like the idea of quality journalism. I regularly order books from Amazon, but they build up faster than I read them. I have plans to go snowboarding in Colorado and trout fishing in Alaska but it may be years before these plans come to fruition. My nephew Charlie is the raddest dude alive, although his younger brother Henry is mounting a significant challenge to the crown. Every time I scratch an item off the list of things I have to do around my house, I add two more. I like to fish, hunt, woodwork, and brew, after, of course, I have cleaned, cooked, laundered and taken out the trash.
