Born on a winter's morning I grew up running around a barn yard barefoot and playing with dogs and chickens. After many years of being checked for parasites my parents finally convinced me that shoes were a good thing and by then I was tromping around the woods with friends.

College was an adventure in music, lacrosse, theatre, and realizing that there is nothing better than finding that perfect place outside to read. That and student tickets to the opera or symphony are amazing.
Post college, life is still full of music, reading, and friends, but also has the horror that is work. I work outside of my field of study, but it has opened me up to new avenues...
