After having my aspirations crushed of becoming the world champion in full-contact origami or a contender in competitive grape-peeling, I ended up as an IT Analyst (geek-goddess) by trade. I’m also a poet, writer, and amateur photographer. Hanging out with my beloved dogs is a source of domestic servitude that I enjoy very much — I am their human that strictly adheres to the ‘Dog Rules.’ They are the boss of me and I’m okay with that!

Because my INTJ left brain gets an exhaustive workout in my profession, I lapse into right brain mode whenever possible to maintain a healthy balance and decompress from the chaos of life and work and too much ‘peopling.’ My writings are often indirect, metaphoric, and derive from a life spent observing, assimilating, listening to, and most crucially, taking note of all that fills my senses. I’m just an old soul with an open heart and mind, finding inspiration within the wondrous, and often, incomprehensibly wicked ways of the universe.
