Writing fulfills my creative tendencies. I don’t think I do it nearly enough “for fun”, as the sporadic dates contained may attest to. Luckily, I write for pleasure more than gets posted here!
I currently live and work in Boise, Idaho, USA.
My passion for the outdoors began many years ago when I was a high school student in California. One particular instructor led camping and backpacking trips during the breaks.
I. was. hooked.
So when I went to college in Northern California I pursued a degree in Natural Resources and Parks with a Geology minor. Those Geology field trips rocked my world. (pun obviously intended).
After graduation I worked in a myriad of wonderful interactive jobs including being a kayaking tour guide, a camping tourguide around the Pacific North and Southwest, volunteering with the Peace Corps, and then I landed a more serious job teaching Earth Science to unsuspecting teenagers.
Upon moving to Boise I began working towards my Masters’ degree and ultimately earned it in 2011 in Bilingual Education/ESL.
In addition to all that background stuff…
I try to be outside for at least an hour every day… in the winter my passion is for skiing… in the summer and other non-snow months the passions vary a little more: SUPping, kayaking, swimming, mountain biking, camping, climbing, taking nature and quirky photos, creating videos, and the list goes on.
Thank you for taking your valuable time visiting this site.
All my best~ Annie!
