About me

In college I worked as a waiter where I had the unfortunate luck of waiting on Christopher Reeves before his accident. Pardon my French, but he was a total d**k. Always made me think, "Hmmmmmm!" when he would talk about peace, love and happiness after his accident.
While working as a waiter, I was in charge of the waitstaff that welcomed the (I.O.C.) International Olympic Committee when they announced that Atlanta would be hosting the 1996 Olympics.
The first campaign I ever worked on was Susan Weiner's campaign for Mayor of Savannah, GA. She won. Thanks to Mayor Weiner my Senior project at The Savannah College of Art and Design was a series of public service announcements featuring the Mayor, The Chief of Police, The Savannah Tourism Board and Mr. Rogers Sumner's 2nd grade class. My first Christmas in Savannah, Georgia, I was invited by a friend to a "Grand Christmas Party" in downtown Savannah. Being WAY out of my league, I spent the evening attached to my friend's side as he shared who each and every person was. The party turned out to be Jim Williams' "Grand Christmas Party". The first one after his third and final acquittal and the last before he passed away of mysterious circumstances. "Midnight in the Garden of Good and
Evil" fans will know who Jim Williams is. I suffer from mild OCD. Not so bad that I have to go through rituals to get anything accomplished. But strong enough that my closets and drawers are in perfect order. I have an enormous collection of good old-fashion, bound paper books.
The wisest person I have ever known once told me, "The only person you are guaranteed to wake up with for the rest of your life is - You!" That phrase haunts me to this day. The cast and crew of "Forrest Gump" shopped (spent big bucks) in my gallery in Savannah after closing off our street to shoot the iconic scene of Forrest (Tom Hanks) sitting on the park bench waiting for his bus. side note: there was not a bench in that location prior to the movie. I am the youngest of 15 kids. My next sibling is 5 years older. I write and eat with my left hand but use my right hand for everything else. I have 2 bachelor degrees, 1 in marketing and the other in radiologic sciences. On November 19, 1991, (I was 19) a pressurecooker pot of potato soup blew up in my face causing 2nd degree burns to over half of it. There is no scarring. My dad became my hero because of this event. My family meets for Sunday dinner 2-3 times per month (mostly cooked by my mom). There are usually 20-25 people at the dinner. I play with my hair and have for almost ever. Once upon a time I couldn't even imagine being 30, I'm now beyond that. My favorite flower is calla lily I'm picky, stubborn and opinionated I've had the pleasure of seeing karma work 1st hand. I'm afraid I may be single forever 2005 changed me forever after almost dying in a carwreck, I spent 8 months in the hospital and am fine now except for a small limp! I like night time better than day time much like my Dad and Grandma Smith.

Brief description: Every time I think of you, I have to remind myself that if you wanted to talk to me, you would.

    Not complimenting Donald Trump at all whatsoever, but it took him a lot of ball strength to say that the White House is a Dump when when his main house in New York City literally looks like it was decorated by Flavor Flav's dentist! It's the kind of decor that people use who have money but VERY cheap tastes. That looks cheap, like a plated, plastic, gumball machine engagement ring.

    For the majority of my life I have been trying to shrink myself to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy. Less me. Because I didn’t want to be a burden. I didn’t want to be too much or push people away. I wanted people to like me. I wanted to be cared for and valued. I wanted to be wanted. So for years, I sacrificed myself for the sake of making other people happy. And for years, I suffered. But I’m tired of suffering, and I am done shrinking, I am now enlarging!

    Lately I have found that most of my inspiration to cook and get creative in the kitchen has been coming from some not so normal places. It used to be that I would simply watch food shows on television, go to restaurants, and check out cook books, but lately I have been finding inspiration in the most unexpected of ways, such as at a federal prison.

    If eating a pizza every day is wrong, then I don't ever want to be correct! Pizzas have grain, dairy, protein and whatever other food groups you put on then...so, I don't see anything wrong at all being a supreme pizza lover! http://www.SolidAmerica.com/Letra%20P/Pizza/Direct_Pizza.htm So Yummy Yum Yum for my Tummy Tum Tum!

    Contrary to what has been your experiences in your life so far, there are people who will love and accept you for who you are, who won't expect you to perform or behave to their expectations, who won't attach any strings to their affection for and acceptance of you. Your worth and value are not becuz of your beliefs and fervor, but rather IN SPITE OF and APART FROM it. If there's even a slight chance at getting something that will make you happy - RISK IT. Life is too short and happiness is too rare.
