I enjoy reading novels and have a varied interest in material ranging from Dan Brown; the writer of The Da Vinci Code to L J Smiths The Vampire Diaries. I have a very keen interest in psychology. I am also interested in historical, environmental and political events that have lead us to todays world and society. I have a bizarre need to know where things come from and how they are created/made. I love travelling, exploring and learning about cultures and traditions. I believe in unity and the power of communication and educa tion. I support the Ian Somerhalder Foundation and believe that change is possible. I am very challenge oriented in both my professional and personal life. I enjoy listening to a varied range of music and I am socially adept. I also enjoy writing and have produced & published several articles to help individuals produce winning resumes, cover letters and gain new career opportunities. I have just started to write a novel. I live life to full, grateful for every day and grab every opportunity that comes along.
