Born and raised in a small Midwestern college town.
First toys included hand-me-down dress-up clothes, the Muzzy tapes in German, and a wooden pie-chart puzzle showing fractions of a whole note.
As a kid, desperately wanted to be/know Laura Ingalls of Little House on the Prairie book fame. Still do.
Obsessed with Star Wars.
Phenomenal memory for music, movie quotes, choreography, and entire plays. Also conversations. This is a curse.
Proud Hufflepuff--to the extent that Hufflepuffs are proud.
Founding member of the Vixens En Garde, an all-female sword-fighting and Shakespeare troupe.
The hair color is real, the curls are natural, and yes, maintaining the whole shebang is obnoxious.
