genealogist, Singer, and Poet in South Dakota

Watch my videos

I'm a Social Media Resistance Influencer, Poetess, Genealogist, Wannabe Singer-Actor-Director, and sometime karaoke singer, living in Hell City, South Dakota. Previously of Castaic, Los Angeles County, California, once upon a time. Also spent formative preteen years traveling cross country with family in a 1947 Flxible Blue Bus.

My interests range all over the place - singing, writing, genealogy, architecture, photography, film, computers, politics, sci-fi/fantasy tv/movies, video gaming, Reiki energy work, the occult, new age, crystals, ancient sites, archeology, etc.

If you want to help see my dream of becoming an adventure-seeking jet-setter come true, I'm looking for remote online work that affords me such a lifestyle. I'm on LinkedIn (, if you want to hire me. I'm on Twitter, Spoutible, & CoSo, if you want to befriend me. All are under Astartiel.

If I was wealthy, instead of poverty-stricken, I'd live in both LA & NYC, off & on, jet-setting it, while spending a fair amount of time at museums, Broadway plays, music concerts, poetry readings, libraries, book stores, dining on Indian, Thai & Italian food, & traveling the world exploring ancient ruins. Alas... I'm not… If you want to help me buy food, gas, cat food, & the ability to move out of this Hell City, SD & to someplace more progressive.

PS - I'm FINALLY working a 40 hour a week job that I'm so far able to handle. Let's hope I don't eventually burnout, like I have in almost every other job I've ever had.
