In pursuit of stories, he's embarrassed his mother by being Tasered, teargassed, and shot with various projectiles, resulting in weird scars and broken limbs. He's subsisted on pizza cleanses, dog treats, and baby food, traveled the globe drinking whatever was offered, and has seen every movie in the Step Up and Chipmunks series. He currently resides in Portland, OR. Approach with caution, or keep your distance by following him @apkryza.
