About Me

CURRENT MISSION

keep thy cool

ABOUT ME

I'm a small, friendly, giggly wanderer. I graduated from college in May of '07 and I have a B.A. in Studio Art with an emphasis in Black and White Film Photography. Since I graduated I have worked on a mountain in Arkansas in Art Education Programming and at a Movie Store. I've done a little bit of world traveling...I took a solo trip to Argentina where I met about 30 members of my family whom I didn't even know existed! I returned home for a month and then left again for a backpacking adventure through Europe. While I was there I visited Paris, Lille, Amsterdam, London, and Cornwall as well as the many places in between. Since my return I've worked at a local cafe. Now I work on informal education programming at WRI. It's kind of boring but overall things are good. Can't complain one bit.

PHILOSOPHY

Where ever you go, there you are.
