On three separate occasions, people have told me that they wished there was a pocket-sized edition of me. Sort of like a polly-pocket, but way cooler. They would carry my mini-me around, and take me out whenever they needed a good laugh, a hug, or just to smile. I love people, and believe that everyone has something wonderful to offer to the world. Speaking of the world, isn't it a magnificent place!? I can't wait to see more of it.
I love my crazy family, and am the middle child of two brothers...both of whom I am proud to say are my closest friends. I'm a writer, living the life everyone but me was able to predict. My first children's book came out in September, and I have been touring local schools doing readings for the past few months. Reading to kids is one of my favorite things to do. Ever. Writing is my passion, and I feel so fortunate to be able to do what I love. I believe in seeking happiness, and embracing life as it unfolds.
Rock climbing is my newest addiction, and I'm always looking for someone to go with. I have an enormous (ever growing) bucket list, and plan to achieve everything on it. I love music. I play harmonica, and pretend to be good at guitar and piano. On sunny days I can be found outside armed with a few harmonicas. I own five. Awkward fun facts: I'm fluent in pig latin. I know all of the lyrics to Barenaked Ladies' "One Week" and Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire." Both of which, I am very proud of.
I like my jokes cheesy, and my cheese stinky. (ba-dum-dum).
