I am a 5′6″ Caucasian female from the Pacific Northwest.  I was born in Colorado, moved to Kentucky when I was three, and when I was in the second grade, we moved to Anacortes.  I went to Mount Baker High School, where I worked for the Summit.

My hobbies include reading, writing, hiking and ice skating.  I also enjoy pointing out mistakes and arguing for the unpopular side, which makes me think I would make a good defense attorney.

I think men look good in kilts, I love Romanian techno music, and I have never seen Dancing with the Stars, Survivor, or American Idol.  I love to challenge the status quo and peoples’ stifled ways of thinking.  I admire law, rules and efficiency, and am particularly impressed when laws and rules are actually followed and enforced!

I took Toby’s 210 class and really enjoyed it.

2. What do you hope to bring to the Horizon? I’m a superstar at profiles – I love to make people come alive on paper. That’s such a cool feeling.

Weird.

People who think!
