Interests
Mid-thirties, with a wife and 18 month old son, living and working in Chicago. I'm a graphic designer/art director for a large consulting firm, and also run my own architectural and product photography business.

I am an atheist, a kalderash rom (gypsy), whiskey drinker, cigar smoker, kilt wearer, do-it-yourselfer, and poet... I am a casual (and perpetual) student of languages, go player, philosophy, physical sciences, mythology, literature and psychology.

I write articles for and work in roma-rights, as well as volunteering and acting as a committee member for other charities and service organizations.

Roma-rights is ethnic focused rather than regaining rights to a traditionally migratory/transient lifestyle in the modern world?

I have to ask what exactly, say in bullet points, would "roma-rights" include?

I did not approve your statement because I would rather not have a pitched battle on my profile. Feel free to respond on yours or a forum post, though. I would gladly join in. Thanks anyway for your input.

John wont approve my comments there, so I had to tell you here. 

That was hilarious. Whether it was intended to be or not.

Te aves Baxtalo, I was discussing the use of Gypsy as a Slur and though raised where it was I fear I've become desensitized to it as the infantry turned it to a nickname. How do you feel about it in your life?

Thank you! ^^ though im still rather on the fence of atheism or believing in something. So agnostic might be the way i go. In either case. Thank you an i shall look around, as this is MUCH better then facebook, as this has more a purprose.

I think so too. Thank you for the welcome.
