I’ve lived my whole life in, or around, Minneapolis, Minnesota. I currently live in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
Writing is my full-time job and I love that I actually did end up being a professional idea-thinker-upper—though just not as I had originally imagined.
In my spare time, I like to read, play on the flying trapeze, travel to warm destinations, watch movies, work-out, and do yoga. I also spend an inordinate amount of time staring out the window.
