I am a technical writer at Ion Systems, in CA. That is only my day job, though. My true passion is my art. I paint whenever I get the chance. I love it more than anything. I also write poetry, but it isn't quite as high on my priority list as painting. I love the outdoors, and rarely spend an entire day inside. California has lovely weather, so I really have no reason to. I love taking my sail boat out on the water to relax. I paint outside, I write outside, I even take my laptop out on the patio. In fact, that is where I am sitting this very instant. :) I am lucky enough to live only three doors down from my girlfriend, so I really have nothing to complain about. My life is pretty great.
