Hi, I’m Jonathan Abrams, born on March 16, 1979. I graduated college in 2001, but had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, so I spent three years teaching English in Japan from 2004 to 2007. When I came back to the US, I went to the first(?) combined New York Comic Con and Anime Convention (I think this was the first year they merged them), and somehow ended up getting a Geek Nights business card from either Rym or Scott, and started listening to the podcast. Eventually, I found my way over to the forums, where, after making a comment about a local comic shop, found out that I lived pretty close to a couple other forum members. We met up to start a roleplaying campaign, and they’ve been my friends ever since, and I’ve slowly gotten to know some of the other Front Row Crew Members.
In 2009, after telling everyone for 9 years that I didn’t want to be a lawyer, I went to law school and graduated in May 2012. Since 2013, I’ve been an appellate attorney at the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, DC.
My primary geek hobbies include tabletop board games, books and comics, some videogames, and I’m a lapsed anime fan.
