I've only been blogging for about 2 years now, something I started whilst killing time between freelance work with City Pages Gimme Noise music blog.  Having served in the Army and National Guard, traveled 50K miles around North America by car for two years working for my fraternity, lived two years in Chicago, three years in Minneapolis and now my first year in Portland, I feel I bring a varied and eclectic background to ethecofem.  On my own blogs I write about indie music on Aural Eyes, craft beers on Hoppiness Is... and Politics/The American Condition on Auspicious Scuttlebutt.  Admittedly my writing is all over the place, so take that as you will.

I'm 34, 6'2", married and have a Weimaraner. In my free-time I enjoy lazy games of disc golf, college football and making meat helmets.  Please feel free to drop me a line or speak your mind on any of my blogs... we don't talk much unfortunately.  I can be reached at tanqueray77@gmail.com, and you can also find me on Twitter.  Thanks for reading our stuff!
