When I was little I wanted Andy Rooney’s job. He got to ask questions with a splash of zany, cynic, and curious—I wanted to be a part of that. And while I love to laugh and smile, having a hall pass for grumpiness (even for a fun moment) seemed enticing if not altogether socially unacceptable (or so I was told) for a young lady. The little rebel within who battles with the good girl was all in.
While my inner scofflaw “defied” conventions, my external introvert (is that a thing?) loves wandering, wondering, and cloud watching. I’m an avid question asker and have strong streak of curiosity that has yet to do me in. I also enjoy learning and connecting the dots in my inner and outer worlds. I’ve always been a voracious reader, fountain pen–and–paper product enthusiast, as well as lover of wax seal jewelry and pretty, shiny objects. I love good stories and analogies, both written and spoken. Tell me your story—my spirit will listen.
I’ve always been told that I was an epic storyteller and have loved storytelling since I was very young. All the years of oral storytelling, observation, and random scribbles over the years finally decided to break through and find daylight. I love playing with words and now I share that in both verbal and written forms.
I frequently stand on the precipice, watching and observing, but when I’m in, I’m all in. I’m your ride-or-die girl, Thelma to your Louise (or Louie, whichever the case may be). Coffee or tea? Yes, please.
