Brief Biographical Sketch:

I hail from the far reaches of Michigan, where it is every bit as bloody cold as it is here. I like listening to music, making music, writing music, doing 8.012 psets (kidding) (mostly), wilderness camping, bicycling, and rock climbing and spinning poi along with all the rest of my jolly home of Tetazoo. The hair you see in my picture is sadly no longer -- I cut it all off coming to college.
