Staff Writer, Moderator, and Poet Laureate at Cartilage Free Captain.

Late-30s geek from northern Indiana. Classically-trained musician and musicologist. My day job is in arts administration at a small Indiana liberal arts college. I home-roast coffee, play the banjo, love board games, craft beer, and sci-fi/fantasy novels.

I like all those SPORTBALL teams over there on the right.
