Reviews and Stuff
I finally have a review of socks on Epinions. Yes, I have written a review of socks! Even more amazing, I have reviewed a fork and my former Annoying Coworker!
Like to gamble and live in the Northeast? I don't think you can do much better than the Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut. It's my favorite place to gamble here in the East.
Want to walk the Las Vegas Strip, then check out my my guide to everything on the strip.
How about one of the best undiscovered outdoor areas in the Northeast? Think about a visit to the Catskill Mountains in New York State. I grew up in the region and had a chance to work there as an Assistant Forest Ranger for a couple of seasons. It's a wonderful part of New York State and well worth a visit.
I've put together a few how-to guides over the years here at Epinions, mostly about outdoor gear topics. So if perhaps you're looking for a little 'how-to' advice, I hope this helps:

I am in my 30's and living just outside of Boston in the western suburbs with my partner.
I went to college at a small liberal arts college in northeastern Vermont where I got a degree in Environmental Science(GO Lyndon State College). I am originally from the Hudson Valley area in NY. After college I lived in Maine for a little over two years working for the State as a Planner in land use regulation and planning for a portion of the state. If I try, I can still pull that Maine accent out of my back pocket.
When I first moved down to Massachusetts I spent about 4 years working for the state in an incredibly tiny, unknown state agency overseeing and managing grants and projects for environmental stuff. Nowadays I work in the environmental consulting field here in Massachusetts - yes, I have gone to the dark side. At least it means I don't have to commute into Boston anymore!
In college I focused my research on geology and biology and became quite the rockhound, hence all the geology book reviews here on Epinions. I've also got a strong general science background and love reading and learning as much about science as I can - hence all the other science related reviews!
I love having new gadgets (or toys as my friends and family put it), so I try out quite a few of them. I like to travel fairly frequently. I have been to Europe and to most areas of the US, with most of my travel throughout New England and New York. Lately though I have been taking to trips to the Southwest to enjoy the recreational opportunities out there.
I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, skiing and canoeing. I try to get outdoors as much as possible. I've set up a blog to discuss those trips. On my blog, Adventures in the Outdoors, which is home to trip reports from all of my adventures. Here's a feed for it...
My partner and I have been together for over 12 years. We met one another back when we were both in college and have been together ever since. We finally made it official and got married in April of 2008! Here is a photo from the big day!
