Casual writer trying to get serious. Once an editor, now a graphic designer, trying to keep his hand in the word-soup. Follows tangents willingly, looks up new words eagerly, issues delayed- blast puns and +5 insights. Waxes romantic over ink on paper, handwritten treasures in envelopes, the rallying cry of a fountain pen scratching across creamy bond, even the labored clack of manual typewriter keys over the machine-age sterility of email. Drowns his workaday frustrations in Simpsons worship, marathon low-limit poker sessions, and brewing bewitching chili or pasta sauce.
