I grew up in Orem, Utah (In the USA) with three brothers and one sister—I happened to be the middle child.

I am now 42 years old, and live in Idaho Falls. It is a nice place to live, especially since we have the man-made falls going through the middle of downtown, and it is about 45 minutes from a famous geographical landmark, Craters of the Moon.

I deal with MCS/EI (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities/Environmental Illness), anxiety, and depression. If you personally know me and interact with me, it would be a good idea to read An Open Letter to those without chronic illness. Related to the open letter, and despite having been written by someone with lupus, The Spoon Theory applies to a lot of people with various disabilities.

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Politically I consider myself somewhere between Constitutionalist and Jeffersonian Liberal, which many consider to be just a fancy way to say Conservative, but it is not.

My favorite foods are pizza and lasagne. My favorite movies are The Princess Bride and The Incredibles. My favorite TV shows are CSI, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Outer Limits and Babylon 5. My favorite books are The Rowan by Anne McCaffrey, Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, Tick Tock by Dean Koontz, Snow Crash & The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson, and The Honor Harrington series & In Fury Born by David Weber. My favorite song is "I Don't Know" by Celine Dion. My favorite actor is Johnny Depp, my favorite actress is Sandra Bullock. My favorite video game is the Kingdom Hearts series. Finally, my favorite color is red.

My hobbies include spending way too much time on the internet, which used to include IRC (#Vim on FreeNode, and #TurnThePage on DALnet), and MUSH/MUX, but now mostly includes Google Hangouts and XMPP/Jabber. I enjoy Programming—usually Perl. I used to enjoy role playing games, such as Hero Games, but I was never particularly good at it. I can spend all day playing with Lego. Of course, I almost always listen to music.
