About me

Gender MALE
Industry Communications or Media
Occupation Writer
Location Corpus Christi, Texas, United States
Introduction I am a UT Austin graduate, a former Peace Corps Volunteer in Guinea, an Appalachian Trail thru-hiker in 2003, the inventor of Rubber Rubberband Man(TM) and Rubber Rubberband Dog(TM), a game and puzzle designer (GAMES, Knucklebones, NPR's Weekend Edition), and a writer (Missoula's Missoulian newspaper, Helena's Independent Record, and the above). I have walked the entire outline of Texas and biked from Texas to California and back. I have recently been accepted to graduate school at Simmons College in Boston, MA, so I am preparing for a move to the east. Here I go!
