FAQs (and not-so-FAQs)
Why do you live in Denver?
After spending 7 years in Seattle, and then 2 years in Nashville, my mom was diagnosed with cancer. In 2010, I moved back to Colorado to be close. Then, I just stayed – because go figure, Denver is actually pretty cool.
Do you think you’ll always live in Denver?
No. But I’ll be here until I’m not anymore.
How do you pay your bills?
I’ve worked various and sundry jobs. Right out of college, I led music at a big church in Seattle for several years, and it was wonderful. Then I moved to Nashville, where I first found employment through a temp agency; I referred to myself as “The Temptress.” Next, I spent almost three years in community relations (my sexy way of saying “tech support”) at an email marketing company. And now, I work in marketing for what I believe to be the greatest little fruit & nut bar on the planet, LÄRABAR.
By the way, this might be a great time to note that since this is a personal website, all of the opinions expressed in this blog are my own, and not that of my employer. Boom: DISCLAIMED.
Where did you go to school?
I graduated from Montrose High School in Montrose, CO, in 2000 – and although it was a fabulous place to grow up, I couldn’t wait to leave. I fled to the Pacific Northwest where I studied music at Seattle Pacific University. It is a useless degree. But I’m glad that I have it.
How do you like your toast?
Barely toasted – warmer than warm, but softer than crispy – and it must be wheat bread. Topped with a single fried egg, or almond butter and bananas – but never a single fried egg and almond butter and bananas.
What do you do in your free time?
Read, write, run, walk, eat, travel, and wallow. In no particular order.
How can I contact you?
Why, you can click on the handy “Contact” tab in the upper right-hand corner of the page. Fancy, huh?
However, let it be known that I do not dialogue with anonymous emailers, or people who don’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re.” I have to draw the line somewhere.
Because “goddess of light and beauty” is a little bit too accurate. It just felt so obvious, you know?
