Fashion is a passion. I love vibrant colors & I get a kick out of gathering old & new pieces to create different looks.

I've worked onstage & off, performing and writing (alt pop, swing & rock) as Malaya Mai, as a Promoter for Excalibur Dance Club, a Dancer for The Chicago Honey Bear Dancers, Artist Booking for Coast II Coast in the Entertainment Industry, and Host & Emcee for Gaming Competitions as well as Crypto Art Shows & Auction.

I enjoy producing events & training people. As Site Relations Manager for Virtual World Entertainment I trained staff across the US on operating custom gaming software, trained servers for a Beverly Hills restaurant & bar, organized on-site gaming competitions. I also produced & coordinated events for I Will Survive Virtual Happy Hour, Black Lives Camera Action, Girls Love Travel, MakersPlace, Jaunty, Starfish Network, & SF Ethereum - including teaching Blockchain 101 for the latter two.

I have a passion for designing marketing materials & creating content, of which I've done for A Lucky Dog, Virtual World Entertainment, the Anti-Cruelty Society of Chicago, Concept Designs, Jaunty Alumni, I Will Survive Virtual Happy Hour, Black Lives Camera Action, MakersPlace, Starfish Network, & SF Ethereum.

Animal behavior fascinates me & I am fluent in "Dog". I have a keen sense for what dogs are thinking & use that to my advantage when I engage a dog & a dog owner in learning to communicate with each other. I will always love Tank, my regal and handsome Rhodesian Ridgeback-Bull Mastiff who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. A beautiful white cat named Moto found me almost a year later. I've trained him to sit, catch, touch and jump. He's trained himself to open doors, cupboards, ovens and drawers. He's a challenge to photograph, but is bursting with energy and I'm determined to capture that.

I love to capture cool things I spot during my travels. You can find my collection on Instagram under annmariealanes.

Currently working on a video podcast & a self-development project.

Aside from my pets, family & close friends - empathy, the environment, alternative health, black & indigenous lives are very important to me.
