Lover of history, teacher of middle school children, banger of heads, reader of books, and interest in all things CVLT. I’m a recent transplant from Birmingham, AL to Seattle, WA where I live with my wife and our two fur-children: Thor and Buck. On a typical weekend, you can find us out exploring or hanging with friends, where I am SURE I am giving someone random facts about serial killers that they did not ask for. Some of my interests include Heavy metal, serial killers, historical biographies, fantasy role playing games, coffee, beer, and TV shows of white people renovating houses.
