Beyond Academia

IMG_3465I like to do things that allow me to explore new places and observe unnoticed stories.

I read science fiction and fantasy novels, write creatively, have adventures outdoors, and send letters in the mail. This poster lives on my office wall and inspires me every time I look at it. I enjoy birdwatching, finding bugs, and looking for salamanders. I dream of someday owning two Roman Tufted Geese named “Magnus” and “Carlsen”. I love morning glories, sunflowers, trilliums, ferns, old-fashioned roses, and jack-in-the-pulpits. I wish I could play the piano, but I can’t. I like making scones, brewing kombucha, hanging out with animals and children, drinking too much coffee, and wondering about what will be coming next.
