About Me

Updated 4/16/19:




I will no longer be doing the number of swaps that I used to do. I used to do 20 swaps every month. I have made a decision to cut back on a permanent basis. I'm not getting any younger and cannot do as much as I used to do. I hope everyone understands.

I am a founder or co-founder in the following groups. If you are interested in any of these groups, please send a request to join. Thank you! I won't be posting swaps in all these groups on a monthly basis as I used to. I hope everyone understands.
