My mom used to tell me I was special and very smart. But she doesn't anymore.
Born in the lush, rolling hills of Framingham, Massachusetts, I soon relocated to the lovely Hudson Valley region of New York State. Having a wrestling tape and DVD collection larger than any reasonably sane person would admit to, I have since spent enough time watching the videos over and over that my eyes bled and I can recite nearly every line of Gorilla Monsoon's commentary word for word. Writing for this website and wearing underwear in public are basically the only productive things I've ever done in my life. Except for the time I set that garbage pail on fire in high school with a makeshift blowtorch. It was accidental, but it was still pretty cool.
