I am female, despite my avatar being male. I have been on Gaia since late '03, with the exception of one hiatus. I am married. Halfway through my PhD in experimental psychology, cognitive and brain sciences. I work in a visual perception lab. Most my research is concerned with color vision. I am also the Neuroscience Program Advisor at my University and I have an additional job working as a wine representative on the weekends. I consider myself a raver. I have a loud a** system in ym car that I blast house music from. My best friend is a DJ. I have two Green Cheek Conures and a Gold Capped Conure. I have a 36gal community tank filled with Tangerine Barbs, Turquoise Rainbowfish, a Blood Parrot, a Mystery Snail and a Peacock Eel aaaaand a 100gal filled with various Malawi Cichlids. I OBVIOUSLY LOVE ZOMBIES. I go to Burning Man. And stuff. And I guess that is enough of that.
