Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm commonly known as Kibo the Beer Nomad, or by my abbreviated handle, KiboBeerNomad.
I'm here to prove the renaissance man is not dead. I have knowledge of many things, knowledge of many varying depths. I am/have been a baker, embalmer, painter, landscaper, furniture builder and handler, author, poet, martial artist, collector, amateur historian, amateur metallurgist, wordsmith, comedian, aspiring blacksmith, and now an aspiring figure customizer of mostly the 4" scale.
I suffered a debilitating head injury in March 2011. I have an infant son who never stops impressing me, especially with his radiant and astonishing positivity. Seriously, the happiest baby I've EVER seen.
I love to read...or rather, I did before my injury, which has affected my vision and balance, amongst other things.
I can be a bit of a cultural cuissinart...I'm a firm believer in Miyamoto Musashi's principle of "Familiarize yourself with EVERYTHING. Know a little about every thing there is to know about."
I admire the work of the great customizers on this site and greatly appreciate everyone here, as everyone has been terrific to me thus far.
