the j word.


my name is


born & raised in michigan, went to undergrad in northern new york & grad school in chicago. working as a museum professional with an emphasis in education & interpretation. often feels like a canadian trapped in an american's body.

likes museums, a good book, indie rock/pop, being a geek, horses, pretty much anything from the 18th century, dogs, lakes, riding on trains, autumn, rainy days, candy, & obscure movies. dislikes mushrooms, narrow-mindedness, talk radio, cocky people, bad grammar, self-promotion, rushing, arithmetic, waking up early, hot weather, & people who misuse apostrophes.

currently reading Persuasion, by Jane Austen.
