I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, and it still holds my heart to this day. I graduated from the University of Colorado with Bachelors in Vocal Performance and Mathematics, with minors in Italian and Astronomy. I now work as an App Developer here in Boulder.
I have been with a wonderful man since 2005. Nathaniel left a Valentine in my locker junior year, and he has been my one and only love. We have a dog named Riker (named after Commander William Riker of the Starship Enterprise), and an adorable Holland Lop named Munch (my wonderful sister, Maddie, helped me name her). We got married on the most epic Pi Day of the century because we're both fantastically huge nerds.
I grew up playing piano (my mom is an amazing piano player and has 2 doctorates, so I didn't have much of a choice to have music in my life). I found that my favorite instrument was my voice. I dabble in guitar, ukulele, banjo and mandolin. My dad is a programmer who started his own business over 20 years ago, and now I am lucky enough to do iOS development, web maintenance and social media outreach for his company.
I also have found creative outlets in many different forms of crafting. Most recently I started sewing, and I enjoy finding the random DIY projects to spice up my home. I practice yoga, run around my neighborhood, and try to lead a generally healthy lifestyle by challenging my body and mind. I have done the Enchanted 10k in Disney World with my sister and husband, and the BolderBoulder three times (so far). I also enjoy cooking and eating both for social reasons and because food is wonderful.
I self identify as a nerd, with my biggest obsession being Disney. Growing up, I was lucky enough to travel to Florida every year, and for my birthday I got to celebrate in Disney World. I do my best to keep going back as often as possible. It's extremely important to me to never let go of my childhood. My other loves are Harry Potter, Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who... the list could go on.
I enjoy spending time outdoors and spending time with the people I love. Feel free to reach out to me if you have anything to say - I would love to hear from you! You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest.
