I was born in Los Angeles, California in 1977. Since then I've lived in Arizona, Nevada, Michigan, and upstate New York. I work for the U.S. Air Force. For the last 10 months, I have lived in the Florida panhandle between Panama City and Pensacola (near an Indian temple mound possibly built by ancient Berbers), with my wife and two dogs. UPDATE: While serving in the U.S. Air Force, I was deployed to Iraq. On returning to the U.S. and being honourably discharged from the Air Force, my wife, dogs, and I returned to my native California, and now I work as an attorney for a real estate and investment company near San Diego.
Why do you want to join Talossa?
Because I've always been interested in politics and languages, and was involved in a couple of projects similar to the early stages of Talossa with my brothers and friends when I was younger. I'm excited about the prospect of joining a real community of people with similarly eccentric interests.
How do you plan to participate in Talossa?
By chatting on Wittenberg, voting in elections, dabbling in the GlheŢ, and hopefully, eventually, making the haxh to participate in a Talossafest.
How did you find out about Talossa?
I first got Internet access as an undergrad in the fall of 1995. A few months later, around the beginning of 1996, I somehow stumbled across Kingdom of Talossa. I lurked, fascinated, for the next five years or so. I debated whether to apply for citizenship several times, but for some reason never took the plunge. Around the end of 2001 I left full-time studenthood behind, and lost track of Talossan affairs somewhere between losing (recreational) high-speed Internet access and starting a new career.
A few months ago I started wondering again what had been going on in Talossa. Once I got spun up on current events, I felt more strongly than ever that I belonged in Talossa, and that the time had come to act on that feeling.
Other than a place for you to express your opinions, what does Talossa mean to you?
Talossa means a place to explore the essence of national identity - a national community in miniature with its own language, traditions, and political system.
