I grew up in the backwoods of Wisconsin, but fell in love with big cities. After graduating from the Art Institute of Colorado in Denver, I moved to New York City in May 2011. I try to visit museums as often as time allows (The National Museum of the American Indian being a not-so-hidden gem I found). I recently completed my first half marathon and continue to challenge myself by running from my home in Queens to random places in Manhattan (biking will be next). I read far too much chick lit (interspersed with "real books"). And I've found exactly one person in NYC that can spell my name correctly.
