About Me

She is married to a physicist, and dinner conversation is just as boring as you’d think it would be. She has coauthored several papers with her husband, which is just as awesome as you’d think it would be. She has two children: a 5 year old daughter (expert in story-telling, robots, space, monkeys, space monkeys, sloths, and monster trucks) and a 3 year old son (expert in dinosaurs, cooking, animals, jumping sosososo high, and belly bumps). In a previous life, she was an extremely dorky Grinnell college student, math tutor, middling-to-poor bassoon player, long-distance cyclist, climber, and moderately talented photographer and printmaker.

Interested in my photography? These days, I mostly take pictures of my kids, but my older work can be found on flickr.
