I was born in Appleton, Wisconsin, in 1977. I am the youngest of five children; I have two older brothers and two older sisters. We moved around quite a bit when I was a child. I mainly grew up in New Jersey and Michigan however. When I was a young boy, about five, I experienced fairly serious brain trauma. This incident, along with a medication I was prescribed for it, led to some notable changes to my mentality and social standing. All of the biological effects the fall ended up causing paled in comparison to the social effect it had on me.
