A life long coastal Californian, I spent the first 19 years of my life in Berkeley, then went to UCSC and got my bachelor of science in computer engineering. I then worked in Santa Cruz for about 3 years at a company that went through various name changes, mergers and buyouts. I finally took a severance package, moved back to Berkeley, and am now attempting to writing a fantasy novel.



Favorite anime/manga characters

  • Ifurita of El Hazard. Not exactly sure why. I guess it's a combination of kick-assness and pathos.
  • Shayla Shayla, also of El Hazard. I like anime women with lots of fire power but short tempers...
  • Lina Inverse of Slayers. See! ;-)
  • Tomoyo Daidoji of CardCaptor Sakura. She's so nice and loyal and dedicated. *Sniffle* Why couldn't she have ended up with Sakura?! *Waaaaahhhh!!!!*
  • Washu of the Tenchi Muyo OAV. I have a soft stop for mad scientists.
  • Rei Ayanami of Evangelion. Some people think that she's a fanboy favorite because they see her as some sort of blowup doll, but not me; the mere thought of kissing her gives me the willies, much less having sex with her (*shudder*). I guess I feel towards her the common female reaction (though I'm male) of wanting to take her and make her all better (like all of the characters in Evangelion, she is extremely fucked up).
  • Sana Kurata of Kodomo no Omacha. Cute, hyperactive, excitable, get really into anything that she's doing, basically nice but easy enough to get a rise out of, rather clueless. I dunno why this combination makes he so appealing to me, but it does.
  • Urd of Oh My Goddess!. I like trouble makers, plus she's sexy, tanned and exotic. ;-)
  • Xellos the Mysterious Priest of Slayers, the only male to make it onto my list. The ultimate trouble maker, cheerful yet cruel, totally unflappable in the face of immanent death; all around, a cool guy. ;-)
