From way up north, where moose outnumber people but still remain shamefully unrepresented in parliament. Resident expert on all things comic books, with a major in Marvel, science-fiction, pop culture in general, Canadian history, American history, world history, and, of course, hockey. Two whole university degrees, one of which is a Bachelors in History, with a minor in poor work habits. Occasional freelancer at Cracked.com. Really likes Hamilton.
