Personal text: My name is Dane, and I work as a Family Rehabilitation Specialist doing in-home family coaching with an element of wilderness therapy to it. When I am not working, a good deal of my time is focused on my various hobbies. I am the vocalist and Theremin player for band, and we're in the process of recording an album and trying to book shows for a regional tour. I've also begun writing my first graphic novel which is even more evidence that I love comic books. I'm the sort of guy who would much rather go to a convention or festival than an amusement park. Well I think that is enough of my ADD rambling for now.

Personal text: In 1972, a crack bureaucrat was sent to prison by a government court for a form he did not complete. This man promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Tasmanian underground. Today, still wanted by the government he survives as a heavy metal luddite. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him....dont bother asking deadone coz he won't help.
