About Me


Testing, 1, 2, Testing


I am Minnesota born and currently based. I geek about grammar, lit, food, art, and theatre. Things that make me the happiest: at home with a new idea for dinner and a glass of wine; getting wrapped up in a book; discovering somewhere new; hole in the wall restaurants; impromptu escapes from work; keeping my soul happy.

I love traveling. If I could travel someplace new each month for the rest of my life, I'd be happy. Granted, that "someplace new" might be the next town for a little while, but that still counts.

I'm an English nerd; I love to read. I write a bit of poetry when the mood strikes. I like people watching.

Other things I like:
Whipped cream from the can / Going to the gym and leaving drenched in sweat / Cooking / Making wine and drinking it / Growing vegetables / Making lists / Waking up early


This moment will never happen again.


My free time is filled with lots of book reading, path hiking, movie watching, vegetable sautéing, wine enjoying, and adventure seeking.

Music, Movies, and Books

Recently, I've picked up a few books from the bestseller's list... A Heartbreaking Work, The Hunger Games trilogy, The Kite Runner... some others are The Male/Female Brain, Pride and Prejudice, The History of Love. If the first chapter doesn't hook me, I usually put it down.

I like movies with quiet humor. Lars and the Real Girl. King of California. BottleRocket. The Edukators. 10 Things I Hate About You. The Royal Tenenbaums. Pride and Prejudice.

Instrumental music is what I listen to most often... Unwed Sailor, Explosions in the Sky, etc. I also really like acoustic stuff like Joe Purdy and Iron and Wine.
