Hello! Typical over-caffeinated Hamilton addict at your service. I enjoy taking way too many classes, geeking out about words/music/books, and talking anybody's ear off about "insert topic of choice". Hit me up with good music, food, or a book recommendation and I'll probably throw ten back your way.
