About me

Location Champaign, IL
Introduction I'm a Wisconsin girl, living in the middle of Illinois. I have been many things...a student in Psychology and Anthropology, office manager, jewelry guru, and weight loss consultant (to name a few!), but at-home, amateur chef is something I've always been.
Favorite Movies Gone With the Wind, Best in Show, Silence of the Lambs, Ghostbusters, The Blues Brothers, Almost Famous, and many others.
Favorite Music Dan Bern, The Silver Jews, Bree Sharp, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Green Day, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Holly Golightly, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Mozart, Chopin, The Mountain Goats, Joanna Newsom, Aaron Williams & the Hoodoo, Cat Power, Aesop Rock, Bob Dylan, Ingrid Michaelson, The Gossip, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Wendy Colonna, and too many others to count.
Favorite Books Gone With the Wind, Fast Food Nation, She's Come Undone, The Kid, or anything else by Dan Savage, Bill Bryson, or David Sedaris.

You've written a hit musical! How will you avoid having fame go to your head?

I would never write a musical--I hate musicals!
