I'm Emma, a native St. Louisan, biracial Japanese-American (the other bits are primarily Irish and Anglo-Saxon, with some Alsatian tossed in the mix), out bisexual (albeit gay by love), and culturally spiritual (while also being Athiest/Agnostic belief-wise -- they're not mutually exclusive).
I'm happily and monogamously in love with my soul mate, Aileen, and plan to get married in September. I suppose it goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, FRIENDS ONLY.
I come from a family comprised mostly of architects, artists and graphic designers, so art was sort of in the cards for me (in some manifestation) from birth. In my case, I'm a poetry and fiction writer (and occasional artist's model), and a devotee of visual arts and creative writing. (The rest of my family are primarily lawyers, if you wondered.)
Above all, I'm interested in anthropology and folklore. I consider myself a world citizen (who isn't, ultimately?) and circumnavigated the globe with a program called Semester at Sea (Take that, bucket list!)
