In the evening and on weekends I enjoy digital painting and photo-manipulation, creating fairies, elementals, goddesses, mermaids, witches and whatever other fantastical images my muse desires. ^_^ During the day I enjoy a job as a graphic artist for a helicopter company.
What little free time I have I spend reading (of course I love fantasy novels...Mercedes Lackey, Terry Pratchett, Mickey Zucker Reichert, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Jim Butcher, R.A. Salvatore and Piers Anthony are among my favorite authors), playing video games (most notably RPGs such as the Final Fantasy series, Elder Scroll series, Fallout series and FPSs like Tomb Raider and Uncharted), and watching movies. I don't watch much television, but I am hooked on Castle and Chuck. I enjoy the DVDs of Deadwood, Rome, Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Battlestar Galactica. Music-wise I like a rather eclectic variety, with movie scores being my favorite genre...Hans Zimmer is my all-time favorite composer.
I also enjoy Agility classes with my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - he's doing quite well and we compete in trials three or four times a year.
In September 2009 I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, Stage IIA. I completed my chemotherapy and radiation in March 2010. My journal does include this journey, as well as my art.
