Some things to know about me:

1) I have a very cute son named Jack and an equally adorable daughter named Leila.
2) I have two cats named Laverne and Shirley. I did not pick the names, but we decided to keep them anyway.
3) I have had pet rats and I love them!
4) I love dark chocolate, bacon and coffee. I haven't had them all together, but I'm sure it would be AWESOME!
5) I actually like reading manga, watching anime and playing DDR.

As you can see I’m partial to fantasy, but I love reading whatever I can get my hands on.

8) Music is a lot harder. I love all kinds of music:
grunge, hard rock, electronic (especially ambient) classical, folk, bluegrass, new wave… the list goes on and on. I really don’t care for Country music, but if forced to I’ll even listen to that.
