About Me Publications
Originally I was born and raised in New Jersey, but after a string of exciting decisions, I found myself earning an Associate degree at the Art Institute of Philadelphia in Web & Multimedia (back when those degrees barely existed!), working in the UK for nearly a decade, and then eventually ending up in California. I am now at Pasadena City College, where I am both student and tutor, in pursuit of my next degree in Geology. I plan to transfer to UC Riverside for my undergrad, and then grad school with (as a lifelong space nerd) a special focus in Planetary Geology. When I’m not geologizing at school, I love hanging out with my little dog, Penne, and my cat, Mr. Meowgi. I am physically incapable of turning down pizza, and I will talk about Geology to anyone and everyone who will listen. I love hiking, camping and off-road adventures, and even though I don't see myself going into paleontology, I'm partial to a good old fossil hunt.
