I work full time I enjoy reading, meditating, exercise, traveling (cruising), movies, computers, music (classic R&B/soul is my fav) and snorkeling. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in March of 2006 and due to toxic megacolon, 3/4 of my large intestine was removed in an emergency surgery. I had a temporary ileostomy then in 12/09 I decided to have a total proctocolectomy and now have a perm ileostomy for life due to testing positive for cancer. I was born in Jacksonville, Florida and was raised in Seward, Alaska and moved to Seattle, WA in 2011 from Anchorage for work.

I am happily married, but, I am still open to friendships of both sexes and all ages and am still interested in meeting other ostomates.
