I am a proud Midwesterner from Indianapolis, IN. I earned my bachelor’s degree at Earlham College, a Quaker liberal arts school, where I majored in Biology and Studio Art. Art and biology turned out to be a great combination for working in Environmental Education, which I did for several years in between college and graduate school. My other interests include, blues dancing, queer theory, and dairy goats. I live in Austin, TX with my partner, roommates, and pets.
