I am an avid reader and lover of writing and creativity! I graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Literature back in 2013 and you may be surprised to know that going into University, I had no idea that's what I wanted to major in. It was only after changing majors from Cultural Anthropology, Mass Media and Psychology that I finally, in my junior year, settled on the subject I'd taken the most classes in and was clearly the most passionate about - Literature. My favorite classes were in African American Literature and Poetry and Post-Apocalyptic Novels and Short Stories. I love texts with world building, emotion, big ethical questions and adventure.
Since graduating from UO, I've worked in sales at the Apple Store and selling energy solutions to businesses, in childcare and in tourism related industries selling adventure tourism and being a guide for various fun activities like sailing and circus. I've traveled a lot since graduating lived for a year in Australia and New Zealand on working holiday visas. I've backpacked through Southeast Asia and I've made many incredible memories that will last a lifetime!
I'm easy to talk to because I can be interested in just about any topic. If it's something you're passionate about, I can get into it. I love getting to know people and stepping in their shoes - seeing from their perspective. My hobbies are reading, writing, going on outdoor adventures and trips to new cities and locations either solo or with friends. I enjoy second hand shopping, music and music events like concerts and festivals, and taking photos.
I look forward to meeting you and thanks for reading a bit about me!
