I've lived in Alaska since 1971. I'm vegetarian, a chocoholic and a shameless tea drinker. My passions are travel and hiking, and I'm an avid reader. To relax after a hard day at the architectural firm where I work, I like to make my own cards or work on various other art projects. Old B-Grade Sci-Fi movies, particularly ones with Big Bugs, also feature greatly in my relaxing moments! I am owned by 2 cats named Thing and Djuna, both Devon Rex cats.
