The artillery operator of Grapeshot Canon, Scifantasy is a geek and a fan by nature, a computer scientist and lawyer by training, a Jew by culture and heritage, and a human by all appearances. He currently works in intellectual property law in New York City.

His hobbies include hanging with his friends, reading, listening to music, watching movies and anime, chatting online with friends and acquaintances around the country and the world, and living life by whatever means are best available to him. He aspires to become more of a polymath (Renaissance man), but would be willing to settle merely to be the best man he can.

He plans to live forever; unlike some, he does not consider dying in the attempt to be an acceptable alternative.
