About me

Location Seattle, Washington, United States
Introduction Hi! My name is Amber. I love stories, art and animals. During the day, I work at an animal rescue taking care of the most charming group of cats and dogs in the world. The animals I work with are constantly making me laugh and inspiring me. The rest of the time I like working on art and stories whether it be creating or consuming. I also love nature, mysteries, adventures and learning new and amazing things.
