About beachbum1975

Short & sweet autobiography: I spent the first 17 years of my life in southern Connecticut. During this time, I spent most evenings after school building tree forts, playing in the forest and rock climbing with a few close friends. In the summer time, I'd go to my families' beach house in South Kingstown, Rhode Island. Then, I moved to Ohio because of my mom's job...

Go ahead and assume a little "teenage angst", smoking cigs, Gen X and a few tattoos at this point in my life.

Five years after moving to Ohio, I began to actually "like" Ohio (I think my wife had something to do with that). And for what its' worth, I'm still proud to be from the East Coast! I wanna move close to the Atlantic before I die so my motto in this life is:"Coastal-style living in my land-locked state..."
