FYI: My schedule is a bit unpredictable, but Sundays are my dedicated "Simbi Days." Please rest assured if you've messaged me I will, at the latest, reply to you by the following Sunday. :)
About me, short-short version: Nerdy reader, maker, artist, and rebel with too many causes. I am curious to the point of annoyance and rarely sitting still. I can't wait to meet you and am excited to see how combining our strengths can benefit everyone!
What's my day job? I happily work at a public library in the YA department during the week, helping teens discover what the library can offer them and planning wide variety of events. Occasionally I work weekends at a local art studio where people drop in to paint, glaze, party, and create.
I grew up in Tennessee. My school path was a bit nontraditional, and I wound up attending Converse College at a young age, where I made many of my best friends to this day, discovered a great deal about how I work best, and earned a BA double majoring in Computer Science and Studio Art, along with completing my liberal arts classes.
After graduation I married and, like many of my generation in the "new economy," have bounced around a wide variety of jobs, moving between South Carolina and Georgia, and also applied my skills in a variety of unpaid positions out of passion. While the past few years have seen me a bit more settled, I still passionately pursue new knowledge, skills, self-fulfillment, and want to leave this world a better place. I'm excited to be here on Simbi with like-minded individuals.
