LocationCincinnati

Raised in Champaign, IL. Went to college in the D.C. area. Lived in Florida and NJ as well, as an adult. Now living in Cincinnati OH.

I'm an avid aquarist, keen bodybuilder, dedicated Zen practitioner, science fiction fanatic, and classical music enthusiast.

My reviews are not great. I kind of use this site as a personal log for the blends I try.
