My two front teeth are fake.

You may expect some wild story, about the daring adventures in my youth. But in reality – my mouth guard wasn't sized properly in peewee football. That was also the moment I knew I wasn't NFL bound. Now I think, and I make. That's probably just as cool.

Here's some other cool things:

Ran into Kanye West at my school. Mom says I'm good at Kareoke. Detroit-style pizza aficionado. NBA Twitter guy. Strategy video game nerd. Sneakerhead, that only wears hard bottoms. Gemini. ENTJ-A 
(take those last two however you want).
