Joined 5 years ago from Florida




I live in Tampa Bay and am an aspiring writer and hubber. My father was in the Air Force for over 20 years and I grew up in multiple states and countries. I have a BA in History and another in Geography and have worked in Planning, Real Estate Consulting and IT for over 17 years. My interests include movies, books, creative writing, geographic information systems, geography and history, gardening, the paranormal, animals and animal welfare. I  try to live life simply, within my means, so on and so forth and try avoid the pitfalls of media-induced spending.

I also recently got the lap band and it is very freeing from a lifelong food obsession. I got it in July 2013 and have since lost 125 lbs so far. It's just the beginning of my journey and I'm so glad I did it.
