When I was nine years old my grandmother died. When I asked my father where grandma had gone he pointed to a star and told me that was my grandmother and that she would always be up in the heavens looking down on us and adorning the sky. If that was my grandmother who was everyobody else? This is where my interest in space started.
I am 43 years old currently living in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. My hobbies include keeping 2 parrots, an African Grey parrot who's named Tuko and has a vocabulary of about 200 words, Birt an 18 year old Double Yellow-headed Amazon parrot that speaks nothing at all, a German Shepherd Dog named Rapture, an alley cat I adopted when I lived in San Francisco named Rigel and a most recently the adoption of Galileo. I also spend a lot of my time breaking glass as Stained Glass is another of my hobbies.
