When not off at college, I live with my parents and my three younger
siblings. I’m also engaged with plans to marry within the
next two years or so.
party/affiliation: Very Moderate Democrat. I
think a little more moderation and a little less partisanship should be
a good thing for everybody.
Methodist though I pray more outside of church than in it.
is your favorite way to spend a weekend? I love spending
time with friends whether I’m going to see a movie, gaming, or just
hanging out and talking.
is the most frightening thing you've ever done? I went out
on a boat for an Outward Bound program and we got caught in a lightning
of your accomplishments are you the most happy with? While
volunteering at an elementary school with the school psychologist
there, I was able to make a difference in a number of children’s lives.
is your favorite word? I like the word callipygian mostly
because of how proper it sounds, but how difficult it is to work a
description of a ‘perfectly proportioned buttocks’ into proper
many languages do you speak? I speak English and Spanish
fluently and like to think that I can read most other Romance languages
is your favorite time of year, and why? I love that time
summer and spring when the rains have started but the pollen isn’t in
air. I love the drop in temperature and just truly enjoy
being caught in the rain.
was your favorite toy as a child? I’d say either my
collection or my blue plastic lightsaber.
|What is your favorite section of
the newspaper? I love reading the opinion pieces because
it gives perspective on what people are saying without claiming to be
the definitive answer. Really though, I love any sort of
you have a useless talent that no one else that you know can do?
I’ve got a voice that I do that tons of my friends have attempted to
imitate but never quite get. Mostly I use it to sing songs
and make jokes to get people laughing. Not exactly dignified
comedy, but it’s goofy fun.
are three things you can't live without? I honestly don’t
think I could live without books, the Internet, and buffalo chicken
subs. I spend hours reading and these days all of my planning
of social gatherings is done online. I’m convinced Google
Wave is the future.
you could have one superpower, which power would you pick?

great way to get around without spending money on gas AND I could use
it to be just a little bit lazier.

the point that I always insist that I drive when I go places with
is the one thing you want to do before you die? I want to
head down to New Orleans and just feel what the city is like.

the Crescent City and really want to have it firsthand.
Tell us about your favorite RPG
character that you've ever played.
I’m currently playing a character named Everett Walker in a Serenity
a friend of mine is running. Everett is a young hacker that
unimposing, and not even especially social apt. He is, on the
great with all kinds of mechanical stuff and hilariously fun to
One of my favorite
moments with him was in one of the moments he was
attempting to be diplomatic and helpful. After rambling and
character as him for about four sentences, the other player I was
turned to me and asked, “Are you talking to me?” She was
trying to figure out if I was talking to her out of character, but
instead we decided that was her characters response with much
are your favorite RPGs? I love Dungeons and Dragons 3.5
because of the huge range of rules, item selection, and ideas presented
in the hundreds of pages published for the system. I love
Wushu because it has almost no rules and leaves everything in the hands
of the players.
was your first RPG session like? I was the
Dungeon Master for my first session of Dungeons and Dragons with 3.5
edition. I absolutely loved it even though we spent more time
trying to figure out the rules than actually playing. This
was down in my parents basement (I know, shocking!) back when I was
probably about fourteen.
was your WORST RPG session like? A game I played much
later (using the same rules actually) turned out to be my worst
session. I was playing a dwarf fighter with tons of big heavy
armor. We spent the first hour arguing about whether we
should stay in a cave to let a storm pass and the rest of the time
slogging through combat after combat after combat. To make
matters worse, the DM insisted that I take extra penalties for my heavy
armor that weren’t in the rulebooks resulting in nearly every combat
round consisting of me swinging and missing when I should have been
able to hit.
is your all-time favorite person to game with? A friend of
mine named Brian who is absolutely incredible at RPing, writes amazing
stories, and still manages to be calm about us getting off track.
