   Welcome to my world.  I grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota, spent summers on my grandparents' farm bordering the Missouri River, went to high school in Canada and Texas, lived for 1 1/2 years in Clearwater, Florida and moved back to Phoenix in October 2001. I'm now back in my home town of Rapid City, SD.

   I have a B.A. in Religious Studies, and a BS in Political Science.  My major interest is Internet collective action.

   I enjoy the Internet, photography, hiking, playing guitar, and writing.
