a college student in Minnesota, getting an Web Site Design
AAS degree. My reason for getting the degree is not for learning,
but for further proof of my skills. In fact, all I've really
learned of use is a little tidbit about the details of GIF
compression, and that I'd rather be getting a degree in philosophy,
logic, or maybe even sociology or language. Web Site design
loses it's charm when you're not learning anything anymore.
But, hey, it's a living (supposedly). I was born in February,
1982, am about 5'10" with dark brown eyes and hair (which
is eternally grown too long).
are extremely varied. As of late, I have become much more
interested in the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. I have learned
much of his mythologies and languages. I listen to a wide
variety of music, and my musical selection ends up as an odd
amalgamation, including Mozart, DJ Dan, Rammstein, Gorillaz,
Squirrel Nut Zippers, and many other odd combinations. I read
a lot, and particularly enjoy J.R.R. Tolkien, Stephen King
(though I am not a horror fan-my favorite King stories are
not his horror stories), and Neal Stephenson (although all
I've read by him is Snow Crash, which would be my favorite
novel if it weren't for J.R.R. Tolkien).
have a varied appreciation of movies, and like just about
any movie that is well done, although I don't like horror
or "chick-flicks". The movies that interest me most
are those that require or provoke thought, such as Memento,
Fight Club (a much more complex movie than ignorants like
Rosie O'Donnell would like to think), 12 Monkeys, Serial Experiments
Lain (a wonderful series with excellent discussions on the
effects of technology on humans, and a lot of perception vs.
reality), and Perfect Blue (probably the best psychological
thriller and conversation movie ever made. Don't be deceived
by it being animated: this is definitely NOT for kids!). As
you may have guessed, I do like Anime (Japanese animation
that is quite often very much not for children). I find America's
stigma that animation is only for children aggravating at
best. I disregard stereotypes and stigmas as often and completely
as I can, as people are always quite different than your initial
have a great deal of interest in philosophy and quantum physics,
which I won't go in to now, or I'll never shut up (you have
no idea how hard it was for me to keep from elaborating on
the works of J.R.R. Tolkien).
are as varied as everything else I am interested in. I create
desktop background, themes, cursors, icons, music, skins for
various programs, skins for various games, models and maps
for games (I have not yet released any models or maps to the
public), fonts, web sites, various types of art (computer
art, drawing, pottery, welding), writing (poetry, short stories,
and a few barely-started novels), pencil-and-paper RPG systems
and worlds, and even languages (some of which may be unveiled
soon). The most important of these in our society is, of course,
web site design.
already done a few sites commercially:
also been non-commercially involved with:
R - A top-quality online fan fiction story for the series
Neon Genesis Evangelion. I collaborated on the desktop theme
(which can be downloaded in my Creations
section), and some of the logos.
others which I have not decided whether or not to list...
there you have it, a brief introduction to the maniacal mind
behind this site.
