Artist, novelist, museum professional. I have worked on an assembly line building semi-truck engines and have also been hired to design websites.

I lived in London for a year to attend grad school and also lived the other 20-something years of my life in a very rural American town. My life is never how I expect it to be, and is often better than I could hope. ...more

This book was equal parts terrifying and disgusting (I don't mean that as an insult, I was genuinely perturbed reading this and that's impressive when a book can do that). It's also very interesting in that neither of the main characters are redeemab ...more
