About Me

About Me

I am originally from Chicago, but currently live in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne with my wife of 2 years and a dachshund named Silas. Before graduating from American University I spent two years with Americorps and attended the University of Oregon, thus hitting up both number one and two on the AS gay-friendly university list. As a job-seeking museum specialist I currently dabble in freelance research, volunteer work and renovating old houses.
