Music is my 1st obsession. I constantly look for new and interesting bands to explore. I'm a liner-note junkie and a former singer in a rock-n-roll band. I love hard and soft music... from Deftones and Manson to Loreena McKennitt and Dead Can Dance. The only music genres I don't care for are rap/hip-hop, country and opera.
Art is my 2nd obsession. I mostly make armour and jewelry from chainmaille, but I do dabble in other media on occasion... I love exploring the creative process in general, and hanging out with unique, artsy-crafty types, too.
My BA is in Psychology and English Writing... a degree that guarantees I'm fun at parties!
I'm big on being responsible and stable. I have a job (same one for over 7 years), a car (paid off), and a house (not paid off). I'm also a butler for 4 cats (when I'm not sleeping or working) that I happen to be allergic to.
I'm mostly into Italian, Mexican and Chinese, but I'm culinarily-curious, so I have no problem trying other types of food. I dislike buffets and fast food, though...
Hobbies include researching new-to-me bands; making jewelry; playing video games, playing cards and board games; trying new restaurants; hanging out with my family; and attending the occasional medieval event (SCA).
I'm sharp and quick-witted... mostly original and sometimes sarcastic. I'm very unabashed and unexpurgated.

-You love my chainmaille jewelry and want to become my patron of the arts... or at least you want to lavish me with favors for making you custom jewelry... ;-)
