I am passionate about writing, love, peace, animal rights, human rights. I believe LOVE has the power to heal all suffering.
I am a college graduate with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology/Sociology. I have worked most of my life in human services. I have worked as a counselor in the mental health system with mentally ill adults, and in corrections with males incarcerated in prison. I have been a writer my whole life, and am currently trying to "break through" as a freelance writer. I am an advocate of Animal Rights, Human Rights, Peace, anti-bullying efforts, non-violence, marijuana legalization, & treatment & rehabilitation for addicts and criminals. I believe everyone is capable of change. I support early intervention, prevention, and education to reduce the number of at-risk youth before they get caught up in the vicious cycle of addiction and the criminal justice system.
I love HipHop music, and respect alot of the artists for overcoming adversity and "keeping it real." I am straight up, 100% real with everyone & treat all living beings with respect & compassion. I have no interest in nor time for phony/2-faced people or Haters. I am spiritual, although not religious. If I were to narrow it down to one core belief system, I would choose Buddhism as my spiritual guide to live by. I try to live my life with passion and compassion, embracing the Buddhist philosophy on life, but I respect all religions that center around compassion and good will.
Favorite artists are Eminem, The Game, T.I., Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Staind, David Bowie, Green Day, Lady Gaga.
My role models/heroes are Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King Jr., Ghandi, Deepak Chopra, Jack Kerouac, Marshall Mathers, Bill Clinton, Paul McCartney...
