I served in the United States Navy as a Vietnamese linguist for six years. During that time, I lived in Japan and traveled over most of Southeast Asia. These days, I work in the financial industry as a network analyst, which is easily as boring as it sounds.
I still love to travel, though. Make no mistake.
My primary passions are writing, and film. In regards to film, I'm particularly passionate about the horror genre. If you dismiss that simply as liking "gross stuff", you're wasting your time and mine. Stephen King's Danse Macabre does well to elaborate on the subject.
I read a lot. My favorite authors are Howard Lovecraft, Thomas Ligotti, and probably Clive Barker (before the teen novel years).
Every person's passions, motivations, and intellects run deeper than an "about" section can afford. If you've read this far, feel free to message me. My friends vary wildly and I do not judge.
I'll add that I do have three cats, and am fostering two. I love all animals, but the sleek grimalkin has a special place in my heart.
