If you don’t count sleep, my days are generally divided into three activities: SEO and Digital Marketing; reading very old stories for grad school; and writing brand new stories to pursue publication. In all three cases, my passion lies in the magical intersection of learning and teaching.
I live in a small town in northern New Mexico with my dog and two cats. I work from home. In my “free” time I’m writing my dissertation as a Ph.D. Candidate in the Mythological Studies and Depth Psychology program at Pacifica Graduate Institute. My undergrad is from Sweet Briar College, where I studied International Affairs and Modern Foreign Languages. I speak conversational Spanish, French, and German, and have a graduate certificate in translation from Georgia State.
I took all of the photographs on the site (with the exception of the headshot above). I tend to go to strange places, and my eye zooms in on stranger details. In my social media profiles (see lower right-hand corner for links) I often mention dystopian imagery and crumbling buildings. I believe part of understanding how things work is noticing how they fall apart. Some of my photos are for sale on Picfair.
I’m very frank about the fact that I have a chronic condition that sometimes makes it hard for me to get around. In fact, I’ve written about it on WebMD! I also still run my personal blog over here – in all its navel-gazing glory.
