I'm an expat copywriter and marketer from the gray world of cubicles turned full-time freelancer/bohemian lifestyle writer. My adoration of vintage, kitsch, horror, animation and making is lifelong. I'm a curious, pensive "scanner"-type personality with a dizzyingly hyperactive right-brain and I've been making nerdy websites since 1997. (They were about anime and riddled with animated gifs. The shame.) I love living a life pursuing health, education and creative passions. I'm a certified herbalist working toward my master herbalism degree and a trained gourmet raw vegan chef. Next I want to finish my studies in digital media and fine arts! I've come to terms with the fact that jumping from passion project to passion project will be a lifelong path; it's crazy, but that's part of the fun! Life would be boring if we weren't constantly learning. I will always be engrossed in a project. I'm a happy work-a-holic chasing my dreams, and I want to help others feel the same way:
With Thrift Core I Share Inspiration for Living a Happy, Healthy Life Outside the Status Quo.
Raised in Naples, Italy and Jacksonville, Florida, I bring that colorful, tropical, eclectic backdrop into everything I create. My love of dinosaurs, robots, and cephalopods knows no bounds.
