I'm a nerd. Who used to jump out of airplanes for this great country. I came in 2nd place in a chili cook off. That was today (6/29/14).
I just ran my 2nd half marathon up in Seattle, 2 days before I turned 30, and I raised over $3600 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I'm going to run a full one next year, mark my words! And it's going to be in Alaska. Complete with rampaging moose and brown bears.
Though he's not pictured, I'm wrapped around the paws of my dog, Scooter. He also goes by Scootiepants.
My parents are from New York, I lived in the South for almost 8 years, and am otherwise born and raised here. So yes, I have a myriad of linguistic, dialectic, and accentual influences in how I talk and communicate non-verbally.
