Raised in Middle-of-Nowhere, Minnesota, currently living just outside the Twin Cities.

Attended St. Cloud State University for a degree in English with an emphasis in Literature. Puts it to good use by oversharing on this and other blogs.

Worked on campus literature/art magazine, Upper Mississippi Harvest (produced through the SCSU English department), as a submissions screening reader from December 2012 to May 2015 and as Poetry Co-Editor, Treasure Committee Member, and Social Networking Committee Member from August 2014 to May 2015. Easily the highlight of my college experience.

Great at managing chaos without going insane.
