I can't remember a time I didn't feel the urge to write. From the moment I opened Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham, I knew I was destined to create my own stories. I hail from northern New Jersey, but re-roosted to sunny south Carolina almost ten years ago, where I watch the sunset over the Intracoastal Waterway every night with Duffy, my lovable Schnoodle. If you see me about, I will most likely have a camera in my hand. My house is decorated with my own photos – life is happening all around us and I have this incessant need to capture every moment. I love a good vodka martini and if a festive mood is in order, I crank up the Latino music and shake my groove thing from one side of the room to the other. And if I happen to have one too many martinis you're bound to hear me recite something from I Love Lucy – and yes, I know every episode by heart. Someday I'll make it to my dream destination, the Galapagos Islands – because if I don't see a Blue Footed Booby before I die, I'll just... I'll just die!
I'm a very eclectic person. I don't follow the rules... I don't break the rules... I just tend to make my own rules, within reason. Ordinary is boring. I'm all for individuality. What one person may think is odd, is truly art to another. If we were all the same, what a monotonous and mundane world this would be.
