Favorite Bands:

Hobbies (outside of record collecting):

-Hockey! I go out of my way to watch the Sabres, I work at an ice rink 4 days a week, I coach Buffalo Regals 19U Girls Hockey, I play Friday nights with cousins and friends, and I play in a bar league. Someday I'd like to ref (I think) and I might pick up a little-guy house team at my rink, too, if I can find time.

-History, particularly the last 150 years. I'm a big fan of the Univ. of Chicago style bottom-up history... think Howard Zinn. Sure, politicians and well-known people had their influence, but how did the rest of people live? That's what I love. I wrote my undergrad thesis on The General Strike of 1926 in Great Britain because it was fascinating to see people panic over the never-quite-real threat of GB 'falling' to communism.

-Economics. I took AP Micro in high school and was the only one in my school to get a 5 on the exam. I then nearly got a BS in Econ but switched it to a BA when I couldn't handle econometrics.

-Batman. He's the shit.

-Did I say hockey?

-Beer? I dunno, I ran out of things I like to learn about.

Random things you want us to know about you:

-I once got arrested for getting jumped at a bar in Quincy, Boston, but I got the charges because, with my roommate's help, we beat the fuck out of the guys who got me. Tip: if you're ever in a fight, no matter what happens, request to go to the hospital and document every tiny scratch. I healed up, but even with pictures it didn't compare to the other guys' hospital admittance. Also, don't kick anyone with a shoe on, it's considered felony assault with a dangerous weapon. At least, in Mass. it is.

-I love historical movies, and none of my friends do. At all.

-I'm a certified Social Studies teacher, but because Buffalo pumps out teachers like crazy and most districts have cut spots in the last two years, I'm having a hard time getting hired.

That's all I can think of.

Not currently, although working on getting a band together, should start writing songs by the end of the year. I used to be in REQUIN, the Mark Sparkles, Aphiskkyu-Bot, and Oops I Stepped in Some Christ (all can be found on MySpace). I also collectively ran the record label Artificial Limb Co. with fellow members of REQUIN and the Mark Sparkles. Might continue the label with my new band.

Random things you want us to know about you:

Just moved to Portland two months ago after spending most of my life in and around Seattle. Still hold allegiance to Seattle sports teams (Sonics forever, Sounders FC and the Mariners), but I'm converting to being a Blazers fan since I no longer have a hoops team to call my own. Unemployed for the first time in my adult life and hating it, need a job now. Queer (not gay). I have a cat named Lucy whom I adore, even though she dislikes most other people and all other animals (maybe BECAUSE of this). Favourite colour is purple, although I'm known for wearing lots of pink. Was married once. Got a vasectomy because I hate the kids. Love to over-share with people on the internet, despite having bad social anxiety in real life.
