Wanderlust + A High Risk Tolerance
After growing up just outside Detroit, her wanderlust drove her to live in San Francisco, Chicago, Minneapolis, Boulder/Denver and now New York City. By the age of 16 she'd visited all of the continental states except one. Because she's either plucky or stupid, she's moved across the country 4 times with no money, no job and no friends. Apropos of nothing, you should know that she tends to think in circles, swirls + stars. Her crowning achievement might just be that Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction) RT'ed her. Twice.
Talk to her about tacos, theatre or travel anytime.
