Divination * Didgeridoo * Daylilies  

About me...
I grew up in northern and west central Ohio.  I went to college in
Bradenton, Florida, majoring in Speech Communication and theater.
Although I had the typical “Midwest” upbringing, I discovered at a
very early age that I was intrigued by the unconventional.   My
curiosity had led me into some fascinating fields of interest.   I have
always been on a Spiritual path, but I never fully realized it until
recently.  My interest in metaphysics includes card readings, psychic
development, mediumship, energy healing,
crystal skulls, ghosts,
ancient alien theories, cryptozoology, and out-of-body experiences.

My hobbies are wide and varied.  

I was a member of the local bonsai society for many years, acting
both as board member and newsletter editor.  Lately, my primary
horticultural interest has been daylily hybridization.  Presently, I have
twenty-one registered daylily varieties with more on the way.

I play several musical instruments including clarinet, saxophone,
didgeridoo, and Native American flute.

At age thirteen, my mother taught me how to crochet.  I have, since
then, also taught myself tatting.

My other interests over the years have included ceramics, beading, egg
carving, glass etching, solid surface sculpting, and Chinese water color.

I also spend a lot of time working on my family genealogy.

By day, you’ll find me at my job at a local chocolate factory where I
sometimes put my public speaking training to work giving guided tours
of the factory.  Various times throughout the month, I can be seen
working as a house manager for two of the historic theaters in

I enjoy reading, music, movies, cooking, gardening, live theater, and
sitting out on my “bistro” on warm summer evenings.

I have lived in Columbus, Ohio, with my partner Phillip since 1986.  
Presently, we have two Russian Blue feline children, Viktor and
Vanka, who bring us great joy, amusement, and companionship.
