This is the spot where I’d tell you more about me.
I make my living writing, though I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus for the last year since being hospitalized near death in 2012.
I run CitySurfing Orlando, a blog about Orlando, Florida, and I am very PR-friendly. I often review items and do write-ups for my readers. I’m also working on a new website to house my travel writing.
What else? I love traveling, especially road trips. I prefer seeing a live band vs. a noisy dance club. I love gadgets and other electronic items. I’m a life-long geek. Seriously…the end speech of Revenge of the Nerds makes me cry every time. But then so does the ending of The Color Purple, and any video showing puppies being reunited with their families.
I was born in Wisconsin, but moved with my mom to British Columbia (that would be in Canada for the map challenged) when I was four. We bounced around the province until we moved back to Wisconsin at age 9. I graduated from Baraboo Sr. High (go T-Birds!) in 1985. Yes, I’m that old. I’ve lived in Florida since 1995, but I still revert back to my Wisconsin roots every now and then.
I live with my best friend Rhonda. If we were gay we’d be the perfect couple, as we’ve known each other for over twenty-five years. But alas, we both prefer men. Family-wise, I lost my mom in 2005 to cancer, my dad the following year, also to cancer, and then my beloved maternal gramma in 2007 at Christmas, so I no longer have any super close family. I do have two three brothers via my dad. We’re still getting to know each other, but I think they’re all pretty groovy. I also have a best friend, Jim, whom I consider to be like my brother – we joke we’re evil twins. He helped me get through high school, and for that I’ll always be grateful. I have no children, by choice.
I dunno – I’m really bad at self-bios. I’ll do a proper “100 things”-type bio in the near future, I promise.
Until then, thanks for visiting my blog. You can also keep up with me by clicking any of the social media icons to the right.
