I was born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta. Discovering I was a left winger and hearing about the snow that seemed so pretty, I went to college in the mid-atlantic. Right now, I’m an aspiring freelance journalist. The tentative plan is to focus on getting some work experience and going abroad. Then, I want to go back to school and eventually become an academic with some focus on environmental issues. My interests include climate change, theories in ecology, conservation biology, the intersection of statistics and the environment, politics, reading and writing fiction, and baking.
