I am 38, male, a computer programmer, a sci-fi/fantasy geek, and live in Pennsylvania, USA. There's not much else to say, unless you care about my guild's ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' exploits. Or my 8-year old son. (He's very cute.)

Incidentally, my online handle, "Fighteer", comes from a character I created in elementary school when I was entranced by ''Anime/{{Voltron}}''. It's a giant yellow robot that later became a TransformingMecha when ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' came out and tended to act as a GodModeSue.

out.



!! Tropes that describe me:
* BadassBookworm: I studied Tae Kwon Do for many years in order to be this. Now that I've got a kid, I've let it slide.
* BigOlUnibrow: I shave it frequently but it keeps growing back.
* CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood.
* {{Geek}}: Promoted from {{Nerd}}, which is what I was in school.
* TheGlassesGottaGo: Said by my then-girlfriend, now wife. I used to be BlindWithoutEm until I got LASIK.
* GoodWithNumbers
* HappilyMarried
* IKnowKarate: Second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
* NerdGlasses: Used to have 'em before getting laser eye surgery.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: I was nicknamed [[TheSpock Mr. Spock]] as a kid for my habit of being pedantically precise in my speaking habits.
* TheSmartGuy
* TookALevelInBadass: I studied Tae Kwon Do to compensate for getting bullied in school. Ironically, since I started training, I've never gotten in a fight.
