Introduction I am a political and cultural animal, and I am on the prowl. "All my life, I've either been on the verge of a major breakdown or on the edge of a major breakthrough." - Etta James
Interests I am an avid golfer thanks to my Dad. Huge Cubs fan! Cooking is something I take great pleasure in. Music calms this savage beast and I'm a damn good singer. I love history, particularly U.S. colonial history. I can geek out over the Dune sci-fi series and all things Fleetwood Mac. Thanks to my best friend, a contemporary artist who creates abstract expressionist paintings, I have a better appreciation for art.
