Some of you may be familiar with me from my work in amateur porn, and being (somewhat) featured on Birchplace.com for a period of time.  Not to mention some of my other random video drops around the internet, or perhaps this is your first time noticing me (My favorite by the way!  New friends are always welcome).

Thanks for stopping by to check on me. :)

I’m:

5’9″ Tall

110 pounds

26/23/27 measureents with an all natural A-cup

I grew up in a little suburb just outside of Detroit, where I spent most of my life up until about two years ago when I bought a house in Detroit proper to restore and raffle off, raising money for a friend’s kidney transplant.  No, this isn’t a Hooker With The Golden Heart type story, it’s merely what I’m doing with my life.  In my recreational down times from that project I enjoy playing golf and tennis (I’m a fairly decent 4.5 and wouldn’t mind a US ranking some day), and on rainy days I’m usually in my little studio rebuilding an old guitar or creating a new custom six string electric.  Sometimes I travel with a guitar and practice amp just to keep my meditations going. :)

If there’s anything else you would like to know, just hit me up, thanks!

  746. Since 2002, the North East of the country has found sectarian violence an Islamist movement that seeks to abolish the secular system of government and create Sharia law, by Boko Haram. Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan in May 2014 promised that Boko Haram attacks have left at least 12,000 people dead and 8,000 people crippled.

  753. During the oil boom of the 1970s, Nigeria joined OPEC and the enormous revenue created made the market more loaded. Despite enormous revenues from oil production and sale, the military government did little spend money on infrastructure, help small and medium businesses, or to improve the standard of living of the population. The government became the center of political battle and the brink of power in the state as oil sales fuelled the rise of national subventions to states. The Nigerian authorities became increasingly determined by petroleum revenues and the international commodity markets for economical and budgetary concerns, as oil production and sales grew. It didn’t develop other sources of the economy for economic stability. That spelled doom to federalism in Nigeria.
