At first glance I appear sophisticated but I see myself as down to earth. I enjoy the finer things in life but am equally comfortable camping and love the great outdoors.I am creative and independent. I usually have at least one creative project going at all times. I am lucky enough to have finally found the perfect job that allows me creative freedom and the time to pursue the things I love. My dogs occupy a major portion of my free time. I breed and train my springer spaniels in agility, tracking and conformation. This not only keeps me both physically and mentally fit, but also provides an outlet for my competitive nature.
