I am from Royal Oak, MI. Just moved here from Kalamazoo where I went to school and was running a local boutique for a few years. I love the outdoors-- camping, backpacking, hiking, kayaking, you name it, if it's outside, I'm there! I have a love for learning and exploring. I love to make others laugh and am a very happy person! I have a creative energy about me and I express that through my jewelry and furniture making. I graduated from Western Michigan University in 2007 with a degree in Textile and Apparel Studies and am currently working as an Apparel Manager at Anthropologie. Lovin' life. Pura Vida!
