Cataloging librarian, lover of culture and freedom for all. I also have a music background, holding two degrees in music (music education for my undergraduate studies; bassoon performance for my Master of Music degree). I love to travel when I am able to, to cook, to read. I consider corresponding to people from all over the world one way of traveling, and through postcrossing, hope to "travel" in this way. While I like postcards that especially give me a feel for a particular locale, I am also very fond of less usual types of postcards.
Some examples might include the following themes:
• Sculpture/fine art
• Unusual buildlings/architecture
• HIstorical themes/reproductions of old photos (even old-fashioned advertising)
• Computer/high tech (esp. things Apple Inc.-themed)
• Humorous/silly cards
• Mail art cards (I create mail art as well, but generally more than just cards)
Again, these are just provided as examples.
Please include the date when you write your card—that would be much appreciated.
I am more than happy to receive whatever is sent to me; I prefer such cards to be stamped postcards and not those in an envelope.

Now have started making a small set of images available from my direct swaps online, just so my Postcrossing friends can see! (Direct swaps from Germany, Canada, Poland, and England)
