5.0 star rating

Hello! I a Southern mountain man, living on a remote farm in rural Western North Carolina. I love the outdoors, go camping and hiking frequently, and rescue dogs. I enjoy caring for animals. I have 40 chickens and guineas, two donkeys, five dogs and three cats. I'm an Army veteran of the Gulf War in the 90s. I'm divorced. I've experienced great personal loss, my four-month-old son passed 20 years ago due to a heart and lung birth defect. I know grief and I know loneliness, and I have learned that coping is not something we should do alone.

My career is in IT, but I am also Earth-spiritual. I'm an animist, which means I believe all things have spirit. I enjoy chatting with people and offering support to those who seek it.
