I live in Portland Oregon. I grew up near Spokane Washington. I have a BA in English and used to work at a bookstore. I finally graduated as a stenocaptioner and am doing CART and not making much. I think I want to go into broadcast captioning but have been taking a break after a more rigorous school experience than I ever expected that has me questioning everything I thought I knew about myself. Such as: I like reading and watching movies. Favorite genre: sci-fi/fantasy/horror. I like jigsaw and crossword puzzles. I love the works of Terry Pratchett & Joss Whedon. I love words and language. I like Bad Religion and Tchaikovsky, chocolate and wine. I spend most leisure time watching TV on DVD and enjoying this somewhat new variant of art form. Who am I? I am. After that I get stuck.
