Shall I begin like David Copperfield: ‘I was born, I grew up’? Or would you rather I begin when I was born to darkness? ~ Louis, Interview with the Vampire
Well, what would you like to know? I was born in Michigan, grew up in Wisconsin, lived in California for 13 years after high school, and currently live in Minnesota. I was a Computer Science major, then a Technical Theatre major, and finally earned my B.A. in English-Creative Writing from California State University, Long Beach. I began a Master’s program in Psychology just before leaving California and somehow completely failed to successfully transfer to the university’s Minnesota campus.
I’ve worked as a library page, a Sandwich Artist, a secretary, a worm packer, a word processor, a theatre tech, and an editor. At the time of this writing, I’m temping in Minnesota and copy editing for a company in Scotland.
For a decade, I was an Annual Passholder at Disneyland, and that was honestly the hardest thing to leave behind when I left California. I have no intention of ever “growing up” – I see no profit in it. Act like a responsible adult? Sure. “Grow up” and be apologetic for loving the things I do? Never.
- Spotting typos and other errors (yes, I am a self-proclaimed grammar Nazi).
- Remembering quotes – I will randomly quote Shakespeare, films, books (see top of this page!).
Interests: Do you really want an itemized list? Or would you rather figure it out as you go? You look like an intelligent individual. Surely you’ll be able to piece it together from the information in these Pages and my posts.
