I live in Austin, TX, and work as a degree evaluator in the Graduate School at the University of Texas at Austin.
I have 3 cats: Clemetine, Hiddles and Benedict.
In my spare time, I read (a lot), watch football, crochet, hang with friends and listen to music. I also work on SF/F conventions. I've been involved with FACT, Inc. since 1997 and am currently on their Board of Directors. I've been Chair of the Board of Directors, Treasurer and Events Coordinator. I chaired the 2007 ArmadilloCon, the regional SF/F convention held every summer in Austin (I also chaired ArmadilloCon in 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2007). I have been treasurer and Guest Liaison several times as well. I also co-chaired the 2006 World Fantasy Convention which was in Austin Nov. 2006.
I am at an age where I don't give a shit about what people think of me. So I'll give fair warning that I'm opinionated and have a potty mouth, and not everyone's going to like that, but this is my space to say what I want. But I think it's nice to give fair warning. But even though I'm occasionally a pain in the ass, I do provide entertainment value (so I've been told), and I love engaging people with different opinions from my own. So, feel free to friend me if you wish. We all like friends.
