Who am I?

Most people call me Bob, because that is a common nickname for Robert. I met a William once who went by Bob because he liked the way it sounded. That was a bit odd. I met him late one night while I was working at the Kountry Kart Deli. Working as a late night grill-cook/sandwich maker/drunk wrangler leads to many encounters with ineresting, and often extremely inebriated people. I've also worked as an occasional delivery driver, and head waiter, ski instructor, camera man, interned with a private investigator and controled both lighting and audio in a funky little local theater. I've also done quite a bit of international traveling, both with educational programs, and independently throughout Europe, and as far as Japan. Although I speak no other languages besides english (and latin, but that doesn't count because it's a dead language) I've never really had trouble making myself understood wherever I happened to be.

I like to draw, paint, and write. I've recently learned the fine art of computer programming at the incomparable Burlington Code Academy, and have been rather enjoying it. I currently live in Burlington, VT, and grew up in Granville. If you've never heard of Granville you are in the vast majority of people. Tucked away between the Mad and White Rivers, Granville is a tiny town with a population of less than 300. When the zombie apocalypse hits Granville will be the place to be. I have a somewhat random, if vast, array of trivia tucked away in my nogin, built up first by my mother, who wrote documentary films for a living, and later expanded on by my studies in college, mostly focusing on mythology and history, but I dabbled a little bit in all of the humanities, and even a few of the sciences. I currently work at the Burlington Code Academy as a TA.
