Bass is a bored grad student at an undisclosed university who first played Pokemon when Red hit the scene in the 90s. He stopped playing through high school and his undergrad career only to restart the games in fall 2009. He has a tendency to use Arcanine in every team.
Bass is currently a grad student studying alternative fuel sources and their economic impact. As his name indicates, he plays bass guitar and is in a few local bands. He enjoys listening to up and coming jazz and indie bands, watching movies, plays rugby and golf, rock climbs, and reading about economics. Bass is also a coffee addict and beer snob in training. A health freak of sorts, he can often be found at organic food shops, farmers markets, local coffee shops, and the gym when not in or teaching a class.
