I have lived in Nebraska all my life. I grew up watching Star Wars and Star Trek: TNG with my dad. Then begin reading sci-fi books as got older. Then started going to con when in 2004 with WillyCon being my first at Wayne State College.

At Wayne State College joined the Sci-Fi and Fantasy Club where I became vice president and president. This is where I got back into reading and watching more TV and movies.
