Hey everyone, just checking in. I got into ASOIAF within the past few months thanks to my (now ex) girlfriend introducing me to it. I am hooked, to say the least. I'm a 24 year old guy who lives in Maryland, USA at the moment, though I grew up in more countries than I can remember haha. I study large African predators for a career and will be starting a Master's project on lions and hyenas in Kenya this fall. Looking forward to having some good discussions! Cheers.
