Native of the Greater Cincinnati, Ohio, region. Raised Catholic. Discovered I have Jewish ancestry on both sides of the family, which I think is really interesting and a valuable part of my heritage. Lived in Colorado Springs, CO, and Minot, ND, in the mid 1980s-1990s. Divorced since early 1990s. Worked as a medical transcriptionist since 1996. I have 3 cats and live in a condo. Really getting into photography and digital art - see my Flickr photostream (screen name juana roja).
