Byron_Wages

I was born and raised in Atlanta: a terribly planned city that was burnt down, then stubbornly rebuilt in equally confusing fashion. 

I used to work for Big Tobacco, then left to go to fake art school.
My dad was thrilled. 

I look forward to being disappointed by the Braves every year and I love people watching. And by people watching I mean making fun of people from a reasonable distance.
