I am very independent, yet simultaneously crave human “contact.” I have a service heart that would rather give than receive, I believe in fairness for all. I am intensely loyal with a strong dose of compassion and nurturing, and I wear my heart on my sleeve.

My Leather journey contains many twists and turns, which has made me stronger, wiser and more forgiving. It also allowed me to become more aware of who I truly am, what I want and what I need to do with my life. I look forward to the rest of my Leather journey with a smile and open arms.
