ABOUT ME

Hi! I'm a student at the University of Wisconsin, Madison majoring in Art and French. I work at the department of art for the university, as a research assistant in the french department, and am a zumba instructor. I specialize in Metalsmithing and Etching (printmaking). I love talking and getting to know people over coffee or simply by hanging out and I love to laugh and tell stories. I keep a sketchbook which acts as a journal for me. I write and draw in it daily. I enjoy walking around and getting to know other people and their cultures. I have a particular interest in (you guessed it) art and French.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I helped occupy and slept in the Wisconsin state capitol for two weeks to protest Scott Walker's mistreatment of Wisconsin workers and the budget bill in the Solidarity Rallies.

I am a former Irish dancer. I competed in the North American National Championships of Irish Dance.

Got a giant poster of me for free from the centre pompidou as part of one of their exhibits

Teach, Learn, Share

I am currently trying to improve my French and knowledge on French culture. I really want to learn what it means to be French.
