    Hey everyone, I thought a good way to further bring us together as a community here would to make a post for everyone to introduce themselves and get to know each other a little bit. This is for new and old members, so I hope to see us all share. I'll start since I'm making this post. Feel free to fill us in on whatever you're comfortable with.
