I'm 44 years of age. Originally from the West Coast. I've lived in a South Eastern portion of the United States for over 20 years. Starting in 2008, I became aware of the fact that much of what I'd been taught to believe about life to that point was inaccurate. The journey since has been difficult but not without growth, for which I am eternally grateful. I like to read, write and plan on taking up photography in the near future.
