I developed a love of reading and language at a young age, and have been doomed to uncontrollable eclecticism ever since. My earliest interests were in the sciences, but I soon discovered that this passion for reading and writing was best expressed in the humanities. After a brief fifteen-year career in dance throughout which I continued to consume literature and language voraciously, I returned to school for literature degrees. Even in that pursuit I was distracted by the variety of interests that took me, and I ended up with degrees in women’s studies as well, both for the subject itself and for the far more challenging breadth of material and interdisciplinarity that department offered and even encouraged. Once again distracted by all the world had to offer, I then spent time fostering another love—music—by working as a freelance kayjay, deejay and eventually veejay as I continued to take advantage of the ever-growing uses of technology as it improved. Illness and a family emergency have somewhat derailed whatever path I was on, but I never get very far from my love of consuming information, enjoying art, and creating my own. Writer, critic, dancer, teacher, linguist, tutor, computer technician, deejay and more; my symbolic hat collection rivals the physical one that has taken over an entire wall. Life is a smorgasbord; the trick is always leaving some room on the plate for the next delicious course.
