About Me

I am an neuro/medical/trauma ICU and Pre-op/PACU registered nurse. I am also a board certified acute care nurse practitioner. I have 2 dogs (1 short haired border collie, and a shepard lab mix). I have been married to my wonderful wife for 17 years and have an 11 year old daughter. I love the Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals and the Arizona Diamondbacks but love sports in general. I love to travel and hope to make it to Ireland, Greece and Denmark someday. I am from New Jersey, but my favorite US city is Portland (Oregon not Maine). I recently traveled to Rome, Venice, Prague and Paris and it was absolutely amazing. I can't believe I waited so long to travel outside the U.S. My favorite animal is the hippo, but love pretty much all animals. Although I don't have any I am obsessed with tattoos, but do have quite a few body piercings (mostly in my ears).

Favorite Music

Outkast, Temptations, Mary J. Blige, Eddie Vedder, Live, The Doors, Common, Nora Jones, Al Green, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Heart, Alicia Keys, Queen Taylor Swift

Favorite Movies

Pulp Fiction, The Shawshank Redemption, Dirty Dancing, The Italian Job, S.W.A.T, Batman The Dark Knight Rises, Empire Records, Coming to America, Lilo & Stitch, 10 Things I Hate About You, A Knights Tale, A League of Their Own, Major League

Favorite Crafts

Mixed media art journal, Greeting Cards, Stamping and Coloring, Flip books, Memory Dex cards, ATC, Origami

Favorite Television

Law & Order SVU, Chicago Fire/PD/Med, Elementary, CSI, Married at First Sight, The Voice, Ink Master, Orange is the New Black, Shameless, Lip Sync Battle, Wicked Tuna, The Good Doctor, The Masked Singer, Next Level Chef, 911, The Cleaning Lady



I am pretty easy to please, as long as effort is put forth. I love the color green in all shades. I love music of all kind but especially R&B especially old school Motown. I enjoy the rain and gloomy days (not many here in Phoenix). My favorite holiday is Halloween and I love everything sugar skull, day of the dead and Frida Khalo. I like coffee and tea (but coffee much more). My favorites are bold patterns like argyle and paisley, but do also like polka dots and stripes.


I really do not like bugs or frogs even the images of. I especially do not like the Tim Holtz bird images.I detest lateness or flaking. I have had this happen far too many times on other sites. Over-embellished items (give it room to breathe). And the over use of glitter. I like using glitter paper, but if it is falling off and getting everywhere I would rather just avoid the mess it makes.

I starting sewing in May of 2020. I learned to sew by making scrub hats for myself and co-workers. It turned into making quilts. My first quilt was a rail fence ottoman topper using the scraps from all the scrub hats I made. Next was a "tea time" pattern using a jelly roll that I gave as a baby gift. Next is a queen size plus "balancing act" quilt for my mom. I love bright colors with high contrast. I really love Tula Pink fabrics and Moda grunge. I try to avoid solid color fabrics but love tone on tone.

Did you send me a RAK? LOL. I got one without a user name attached so I'm not sure but I think it was you. If I am correct thank you so much for the dex cards. It was a complete surprise!
