What is there to know about me!?
Let's see...where to begin? Well, I'm somewhere in my 30s, and have an absolutely wonderful family. I live in Pleasant Ridge with my husband, Jake, and our puppy, Kona!
I am the proud father of that beautiful furry Blue Pitbull named Kona, who LOVES coming to visit my students at Troy Union.
I've always loved swimming just as long as I can remember, and that's where my obsession of FROGS came in. When I was in second grade, I would've traded a day as a human to live the care-free life of a frog! I'm also a HUGE fan of the Earth (it is our home after all) and its Oceans. I have a passion for protecting the land and the water by recycling, composting, supporting Eco-friendly businesses, and living a sustainable lifestyle.
Some of my favorites:
Color: Green & Blue
Food: My food choices have changed over the past year, as I eat a diet free of dairy and have made a conscious choice to eat less meat.
TV: I love documentaries on nature and animals! There's nothing more precious and beautiful than watching life "happen" naturally around us every day! I also love home renovation shows! I LOVE HGTV.
Hobbies/Activities: I enjoy outdoor activities, like bike-riding, swimming, beaching, running, kayaking, gardening, landscaping, walking my puppy, and relaxing by the river! I also LOVE photography and creating art with Photoshop and Illustrator!
Author: I love how creative Dr. Seuss is, not only with his rhyming words but his ability to turn real life social issues like segregation/racism, equality, and being environmentally green and turning them into fun children's books!
I also love Eric Carle innovative techniques of illustrating his books.
Roald Dahl is another one of my favorite authors! He's the writer of Witches, BFG, and Fantastic Mr. Fox!
