Hello! I'm Q. You can call me Q or B, doesn't matter. I come off kind of intimidating in the forums, but really I am super approachable, I promise! Feel free to PM or comment me.
I joined Gaia on Jan 31, 2004. I'm now 25 years old. I've done a lot with my life.
I have experience with horses, teaching, mentoring, and all sorts of random odd jobs.
I've traveled to many places around the world.
I have a degree in video production. I've been editing video as a hobby since 2002. I had a brief professional stint before deciding to keep it a hobby.
I joined the US Navy later and got out in August 2012. I did several things there. Worked as an emergency first responder (for damage control), security guard, AV tech, solder tech, and briefly as a consult for AFN Sasebo (Japan).
I've done freelance writing, videography, graphic and web design. I've illustrated two children books and written my own novel
I've lived in Georgia (USA), Florida (USA), and Sasebo (Kyushu, Japan). When in the USN, I was on a forward deployed amphibious assault ship, out to sea 200+ days a year.
I currently live in New York, but am trying to go to Finland for a degree in Maritime Management, to become a master mariner.
I've done a lot with my life so far but I have yet to decide exactly how I want to continue. Ever since I left the Navy, I've felt kind of lost, really. At the moment, I am most concerned with experiencing new things. I like to listen to people's stories about how they live and what they do.
