Bio:

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. I was born in 1969, and I FINALLY moved out of Brooklyn in 2004! (YAY!) -- I now live in Upstate New York and run a business as a website designer & developer. I pretty much live and work in the middle of nowhere. I love it!

I "awoke" as Otherkin at 15, and it caused me all sorts of problems, including me waking up as multiple at 16 and a subsequent 9-month residency in a mental hospital on Long Island for a suicide attempt. I first met my current boyfriend, Chris, there. We dated for perhaps 2 months, before he was forced to leave the hospital, and we didn't see each other again for 17 years.

I was married at 25 and gave birth to my daughter. At 27 I was separated, and now I'm divorced, my ex and I are good friends, and he has custody of my daughter -- unconventional, but it seems to have worked out fairly well. At 28, I gave birth to my son, known in the Otherkin community as "Grub Leafeater."

In December, 2002, I got an email from Chris, and we pretty much picked up our relationship where we left off -- the relationship that started when I'd just turned 17. It's been five years, and things are going wonderfully so far.

Grub, Chris and I live in upstate New York together.
