I am a child of the Pennsylvania countryside, with an imagination that has not shrunk with age. I am probably the strangest fellow you would ever meet; eccentric, somewhat of an outcast, but one who marches to the beat of his own heart.
Habitual drawer, when I put my pencil to paper I almost always have to draw a dragon, specifically one of my characters which are anthropomorphic/bipedal alien dragons that fly in spaceships and stuff.
I've explored various other forms of art. 3D art is essentially the 2D art extruded into a 3D form. I might post some of this later, if I feel like it.
Photographic subjects are models of the miniature sorts, most often insects but sometimes small reptiles. Living in the country side I even got a few photos of deer strolling through the yard outside my window. They just aren't good or clear enough photos to post on here!
Audio pleasures vary widely, from soothing and melodic alternative rock from the mid 1990s such as Toad the Wet Sprocket, to dreamy shoegazing such as Slowdive, to meditative and massively atmospheric doom metal such as Mournful Congregation, to bludgeoning and brutal death metal such as Benighted, to epic and fantastical anthems of power metal such as Freedom Call, to cold and forbiddingly misanthropic black metal such as Leviathan, to the warm and welcoming voice of Priscilla Ahn, to the unifying force of local bands that have provided me a haven from the rest of the world.
Hobbies of late include raising various species of insects. One of my favorites in this area are praying mantises, I have experience with 16 different types including the common Chinese mantis (Tenodera sinensis), the exotic Orchid mantis (Hymenopus coronatus), the bizarre Cryptic mantis (Sibylla pretiosa) and several others.
I also have Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches and several species of grasshopper. In the past I've kept Eastern Lubber grasshoppers, a creature I hope to obtain once again.
I've acquired a taste for whisky ever since I turned 21. I'm one of those "weird people" that actually waited until they were of legal age to consume alcohol. Scotch, Irish, Bourbon, Tennessee, Rye, Canadian, Japanese and even French whiskies inhabit my collection. My favorite is Laphroaig 10 year, a single malt Islay Scotch.
