I shake you warmly by the hand, and welcome you to my bio! Currently a writer, artist, and freelance explorer, I have played many other roles. I've managed a restaurant, debated across the country, taught children in Spain, run a handful of student organizations and retreats, served as the Editor/Producer/Citizen Journalist Manager for a, sung in choir for many years, volunteered with dozens of organizations and interned with a few, home-schooled a relative, cared for many a pet, and protested a thing or two. I am also married to my dreamy gearhead high school sweetheart, and together we are unschooling with our 10-year-old tenacious and hilarious daughter. Aside from my main passions of writing, art, reading, and generally being as ambitious as possible, I love to play with my daughter, learn new things, have date nights with The Husband, and highlight anything within my reach.

The Tuesday Currents

I’m currently…

Hiking with my family and one of Wood Sprite’s best friends. We were supposed to go camping but she’s camped out after a weekend with Scouts, with plenty of bangs and bruises from slipping in mud, so I don’t blame her!

Listening to The Greatest Showman soundtrack. I kind of hate how obsessed I am with this right now! Gorgeous songs and visuals… yet a movie that made a hero out of a jerkface and vice versa while simultaneously missing the mark to portray a more meaningful message. Sigh.

Reading Self-Reg, The Gifts of Imperfection, Harley Quinn comics, The Hazel Wood, The Bear and the Nightingale.

Watching Black Panther. Love. Best Marvel movie ever and one of the best films ever, period.

Wanting… to better manage time. Who doesn’t? Indy to get a promotion. To finish and publish my YA novel.

Looking forward to… Indy off this weekend, snuggling chicks, dates with Indy, the semester being over.

What are you doing this week?
