I am passionate about music, jazz, in particular, and the arts in general. My degree is in English and I am very much aware of the written and spoken word. I am an avid reader, primarily of fiction. I have recently tried my hand at writing childrens literature and hope to expand upon that. Also, I am an avid cyclist and look forward to every opportunity, though limited by my work schedule, to get out on the bike. In regard to my personality, I would describe myself as warm, caring, affectionate and compassionate. I am simply a nice person. I love dogs. However, I am allergic to most cats.
