||Chris and I are parents of two psycho girlie ferrets, Isis and Thalia. They are our best buddies!
I'm an Animal, Eco, & Human Rights Activist. I'm Spiritual, leaning toward Earth Religions. I'm a Horror film freak & probably have an unhealthy obsession with Michael Myers). I also enjoy Martial Arts (anything with Donnie Yen is a HUGE plus!), Sci-Fi, Foreign, Indie, Fantasy & Documentary Film. I love various kinds of muzik. LOVE the Chicago CUBBIES. My fave author is Edgar Allan Poe & my fave artist is M.C. Escher. I enjoy Runes, Magick, Shapeshifting, Tarot, Russian Folklore, & Mythology, especially Norse, Egyptian, & Native American. I LOVE to sing. I took professional voice lessons from 1991-1997. I admire martial arts and love swords. I like the fun stuff like, makeup! Sephora is a haven. No girl can have too much cruelty free gloss.
My boyfriend, Chris, & I have been together since June 21, 2000. I mean that we've really been together, no break ups in between. We have a great relationship. One that some are only able to dream about. I'm so fortunate to have found my soul mate & best friend. :)
I'm easy going but not a doormat. I have an open mind, I'm shy, & have a very sarcastic sense of humor. I enjoy laughter. Although I don't speak any other languages besides English, fluently, I've got decent Spanglish skills & know other "goodies" in Russian & Polish. I especially love to listen to natives speak German & Russian. My dream job would be doing anything to help my animal friends. I'm not a school person, so being a Vet or Zoologist is out of the question. :) I'm very opinionated & have strong convictions, but respect other's differences.

|Wild Fact About Me
||I'm dangerous with knives and love swords.
||"The problem with the gene pool is there's no lifeguard."
|What Gives Me Hope
||Selflessness... When I hear of people who do good: Those that use their knowlegde for positivity, Those who dare to make their dreams come true, Those who put their lives on the line for complete strangers, Those who overcome their fears & take risks for the benefit of all.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||Where would I begin? I would start small by strengthening the clean indoor air ordinance in order to eliminate smoking in workplaces & public areas.
|What/who changed my life and why
||My Angels, aka my Ferrets! They taught me how to love beyond anything I ever thought possible. It's both magical & peaceful when you can honestly say that you would give your life to save another being without a thought. Two other beings that had a profound effect on my life are, a teacher I had in highscool, Mr. Longo. He opened my eyes to the cruelty of animals for food, science, & so-called fashion. He taught me the difference between indifference & ignorance. Another is my former voice teacher, Ms. Rak, who opened my mind & heart & awakened my awareness of my body, spirit, & soul.
