About Me

Greetings fellow swappers! I've returned after a long hiatus for a few swaps here and there to give me something fun and frivolous to do!

I'm a California native, but I was born in Ireland. I've just finished four semesters as a full-time community college student and now I am starting my career as an artist. I work part time at a wood jewelry and home goods shop called WoodKeeps. I'm married to a mathematician/music + art lover and we live by the sea.

Hi! Thank you for your postcard with the mailboxes. Wow, it's a great work! It arrived today, safe and sound. A bit late but, you know, mail (and life) in Morocco is slooooooow!
