I am an artist, designer and photographer. I enjoy history, traveling and visiting art galleries and museums. I'm a huge supporter of the animal kingdom and currently have three pets, Cosmos my cat, Cowboy my dog (rescue Dachshund) and Mogwai my other dog (rescue Yorkie). I love beaches and exploring caves. My favorite music is soft jazz, blues and classic rock. My favorite food is oysters! No TV for me, I prefer research, design and outdoor activities.
