And The Less Official Bio

I play five instruments, some very badly. I grew up in a large old house next to a forest. I own way too many books. I lived in Prague for a while, and Tokyo, and now I live in Berlin. I was homeschooled, which I assume explains everything. I was also stung by a jellyfish once, which might explain a few things, too. I like movies, books, weird music, traveling, art, trees, cold weather, and chocolate.
