About meI am a long time practicioner of magic and a devout pagan, as well as an EMT and Phlebotomist working on my paramedic certification. I see no conflict in these areas of my life, as I keep the scientific side in hospitals and clinics and the paranormal side at home and with friends. My interests in vampirism, alchemy, mesoamerican cultures, shamanism, magic, the paranormal and medicine are strong.

Besides this I am a camper, artist and crafter who enjoys the study of primitive survival and technology skills and a gemstone cutter. I welcome contact from like minded individuals who are understanding of those who prefer a darker path of paganism and magic, and have actually read some of the classic works of shamanism, Western Occultism and magic.

About my libraryMy library reflects my very eclectic taste in books. I am willing to tolerate some fluffier magic and occultism, but my preference is for classic, scholarly and anthropological works if available. I also am interested in new interpretations on classical themes in occultism and anything on vampirism and alchemy I can get ahold of.

On the scientific end of my collection, I have several medical reference books that I peruse and study when I can. My textbooks are being added one at a time, and my fictional books will be added later. After I finish adding my basic collection, the new books I read will be added as I finish them.
