I was born in 1990, and currently live in Burlington, Vermont. I am currently a Ph.D student studying cell biology, biochemistry, and their applications in medicine. I discovered TV Tropes in 2009 when I was bored at work waiting for my assay results to finish compiling, and I thought I'd join in on the insanity.

- Most Fanfic Writers Are Girls: Averted, I'm a guy, but I don't write pure shipping fics.
- A Boy And His Dog: Most of my childhood can be summed up as this.

- Dark Is Not Evil: I wear a lot of black clothing. Pretty sure I'm not evil.

- Hollywood New England: I was born, raised, and live in Massachusetts.
