I'm a massive geek but I often hide it well. I was born and raised on Long Island but also grew up with a home in the middle of a mountainous forest in PA about 45 minutes outside of Scranton. (Side-note: I was deeply saddened when the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons became the Yankees.)
During my lifetime I have visited (or at least made pit stops in) 20 states + D.C. and have been to England, Ireland, & Canada. (possibly more states but my memory is fuzzy)
I attended St. Anthony's High School in Huntington from '96-'00 and C.W. Post college from '00-'05. Graduated with a Bachelor's in English which I later found out was rather useless despite all the brochures for every college listing how you could get a job in almost every field with such a degree.
I used to know quite a bit of Spanish and was mostly fluent in Sign Language for a time but have since lost the ability due to lack of use.
For about 4 years I worked for State Farm in the Corporate Law Department at Richard T. Lau & Associates (first as a Mail & File clerk, then as a Team Secretary in the Queens Litigation Team).
Currently I'm the SEO Copywriter at an eCommerce SMB in Deer Park.
I'm also a member of the LIRP meetup group where I regularly dork out with people at Ravenblood Games in Plainview playing things like D&D, Shadowrun, Dragon Age, Mage, and various boardgames & card games like Smallworld and Ascension.
