My self-summary
Major shout out to the stormtrooper cosplayer at Fair Oaks Mall!

DC area native working my way into the healthcare field. Technically I'm from NoVA, but what's the difference? More trees. Just. More. Trees.

Music and writing have been lifelong hobbies of mine that I've honed since college. Always loved making stories, creating worlds, and handing out my pieces for my friends to read. Planning on publishing my first book! Guitar's getting there, if my hands would only run across the fretboard as fast as I write.
What I’m doing with my life
Graduate school wasn't right for me. So I'm looking for anything in the biotech or healthcare industries. Ideally I'd like to work at a pharmaceutical company or with electronic health records. Job applications going out by the dozens!

For now, I work at Target.

In my free time I'm callousing my hands, either at the gym or on the fretboards of my guitars. Jazz, rock, metal, indie, alternative, I like just about everything! Musicality isn't a dealbreaker, but I make an awesome concert buddy! Live music on the regular once we've gotten to know each other. Smaller clubs make better shows.

I've finished a book (first in a series). Currently making final, final edits before searching for potential agents/publishers. Book 2 is about half finished. Many other projects in indefinite hiatus.

I love going to concerts, cooking, working out, going to new bars and restaurants, writing, and playing guitar. Love to get back into hiking and camping. Down for kayaking, rock climbing, spelunking, and skydiving.

The six things I could never do without
GarageBand
My Taylor (the guitar, not Swift)
Notepad
iPhone
Dumbbells
Art pens
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Random song bits that pop into my head, and thankful that "Voice Memos" on iPhone are a thing. Aka, jotting down song ideas.

What body design and pickups do I want on a custom guitar project?

Plot ideas for future books or short stories
