Senior Member Interview
May 17, 2010
- When were you raised to Gaidin of the Mahdi'in d'ma Dieb?
When the moon was New and the celestial nexus coalesced into the formation called "The Fox."
- Why did you choose Mahdi'in d'ma Dieb?
I didn't really choose MDD. It chose me and I had no choice but to answer the call.
- How was your time as Citizen/Recruit/Soldier?
I was a Citizen for two years before I finally got talked into joining the Tower. I don't remember a whole lot about Recruit and Soldier days. I guess nothing interesting really happened.
- What things do you do for TV.net?
I provide some alternative medicine info for the Healer's Guild. And I am the nice guy facade of MDD. ;)
- How did you get to read the Series?
In 1993, I was looking for another big fat fantasy book to read. I like the ones that have their own glossary in the back. My librarian suggest that I take a look at The Eye of the World. And the rest is history.
- To whom are you bonded, if you're bonded?
Bonded to the lovely Adina al'Mari. She's like a little sis that I like to check in on every now and again. And she sends me the best baked goods! :D
- Who is your favorite character of the Series? Favorite Nation?
I find that a difficult question. I find Matt the most entertaining. But I think I relate more with Perrin. I don't think any nation has enamored me enough to have a favorite.
- Have you ever attended any Real Life Functions? Did you like them if you did, and why? (Why do you think people should come to any future functions?)
Anni 07 and Anni 08. Had a great time at both. It's fun to connect real faces to the folks you chat with online.
- What kind of music do you like?
Metal and Country.
Metallica, Rob Zombie, Nine Inch Nails, Lamb of God, Dethklok, Deftones, Rage Against The Machine, ect.
George Strait, Alan Jackson, Conway Twitty, Roger Miller, Allison Kraus, etc.
- What are your favorite movies?
Spaceballs Army of Darkness Mirrormask Labyrinth Dark Crystal 300 Blazing Saddles Star Dust Jet Li's Fearless
- What job do you have?
I am a nationally certified and state licensed Acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner. I'm also a registered Massage Therapist.
- Do you have a pet?
- What languages do you speak?
English, and enough Spanish to get me stabbed.
- What profession did you want to have when you were a kid?
I wanted to be a pilot like my uncle.
- Seanchan or Shara?
- Asmodean or Sammael?
Asmodean. I killed him.
- Party or lounging at home?
I am a hobbit at heart. I like a good pint at home.
- Tea or coffee?
Tea, of course. It has many more therapeutic properties than coffee.
- A short bio about yourself.
Grew up on a cattle ranch in Wyoming. Happily married to a lovely red head. And we a fabulous little boy. And no, I'm not a Kung-fu Cowboy.
