I had to write about myself recently and I’ve decided to share it with you all. It’s pretty much me in a nutshell. Also I feel the need to mention, I’ve been told I’m funny from time to time, so there’s that. 😉
One could say I have an unhealthy appreciation for Starbucks. During my time in university at Northern Arizona as a political science major roughly 99.9% of my studying/homework was done in a Starbucks. Aside from my caffeine addiction, I come from a family of musicians and I am one myself. Since I was 16, I’ve taught music to others particularly working with kids. I am an avid reader and enjoy reading many genres including, fiction, nonfiction, and biographies. When I’m not doing all of the above I enjoy walking to the dog park with my 2 year old Brittany Spaniel, Abbey. She’s very smart and athletic, so she keeps me on my toes in the best way. I also enjoy reading up on the latest in tech-startups. During my time in college, I worked at my student technology center where I became interested in technology and its development. I am a big fan of founders like Alexis Ohanian and Jan Koum. I also enjoy sports, particularly basketball. Being a southern California native, I do root for the Lakers, however I am a fan of the Phoenix Suns as well. Listening to music is also a passion of mine. If you shuffle through my iPod, you could literally go from death metal to classical to jazz, to EDM within 4 clicks. There is something great in every musical genre, so why not listen to them all? Except for country; though I can appreciate the musical talent many country singers possess, I find the majority of their themes to be depressing. To sum it all up, I am a caffeinated, musically inclined reader, who spoils her dog while watching sports and checking in on the Silicon Valley scene, that loves to write.
