I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, same place as my father. My grandfather moved there from Holland with the help of Mormon missionaries.
I've lived in Cortez, Colorado, Grand Junction, Colorado, Florida, and in Akron, Ohio.
My childhood was great fun until school started. Things went down hill from there until I got out of school, and rebounded once I entered college at the University of Akron.
By profession I am unemployed. When not engaged in my primary field of unemployment, I earn money as a graduate assistant at the University of Akron. I also run a student rental property, albeit a small one of three units.
By religion I am a Buddhist, of the American variety. That means I pick and choose which ideas I want to adopt from the vast number of south-east Asian version available.
I live for my wife, my son Vlad, and for the hope that everything will be okay in the end, despite evidence to the contrary.
