I grew up in southern New Hampshire and attended a Waldorf school until 8th Grade. It was there that I got my affinity for creative writing. I attended a Catholic High School and moved immediately to Hawaii after I graduated. I moved down to Orlando in where I was a boat skipper at JAWS, a safari driver at Animal Kingdom and overall theme park grunt. After graduating from the University of Central Florida, I entered the teaching field, during which time I graduated with a Masters in Education from Rollins College. I taught elementary school for in Central Florida before accepting a teaching job in Bern, Switzerland. I currently reside in Southern Maine.
