I grew up in Rochester, moved away to Maine for college, and have
been in and/or around Rochester for the past few years. I work as a
nurse and love it. In the back of my head I also have dreams of
being a printmaker and/or an oral historian a la Studs Terkel. Life

I'm not doing that, I'm dreaming up projects to make and build...my
list is miles long, and there's always at least three things in

I’m really good at

show. Favorites include Lauryn Hill, Lucinda Williams, The Roots,
Yo-Yo Ma's Appalachian Journey, bluegrass, motown, alt-country, and
r and b. I've been into making mixes lately, and they often jump
all over the musical map.
The six things I could never do without
fresh air and room to roam
slippers and scarves
I spend a lot of time thinking about
when and where i'd like to travel next, my next printmaking/art
On a typical Friday night I am
