Born and raised in NYC. Living a dull and relatively uneventful life but enjoying enormously the diversions on the web. I am interested in science fiction and the future because that's where we're heading one day at a time. I'm addicted to books, a lover of animals especially cats, enraptured by outer space, frustrated with politics and suffering from chronic televisionitis due to watching television since I was 7. Member of the Secret Society of the Paperclip, celebrating that humble but powerful object--never underestimate the power of a paperclip!
