NAME: Andrew Joshua Talon

GENDER: Male
AGE: 24
HEIGHT: 5'11"
WEIGHT: 210 lbs
EYES: Forest Green, glasses
HAIR: Messy dark brown
NATIONALITY: American

Just your average, patriotic American guy, who is from a proudly military and Christian background. Despite all my suffering, and troubles, and setbacks, unlike others who have gone through similar hardships, I haven't turned into an emo kid or some other kind of un-self-aware loser. I write for fun, for educational purposes, and maybe for a future career. I really have no idea what I want to do with my life.

I am a huge anime fan, not to mention lover of Western literature such as Aristotle, Socrates, Dickens, Shakespeare, and other classics. I also enjoy Amy Tan, Sun Tzu, and Confucious. I love all kinds of music (save for rap, hip hop and hippie), science fiction (except for Star Trek: Enterprise), and British humor.

I'm currently pursuing a degree in anthropology at the University of Colorado, so if you have an interest in that sort of thing I'll be publishing my work I've done for it.
