Hello! I’m Angela, a Minnesotan by birth and, perhaps, by nature. I grew up in East St. Paul, spent my college years at the College of Saint Benedict, and resided intermittently in Minneapolis for the remainder of my twenties. In former lives, I taught English in China, worked as a Divemaster all over Southeast Asia, and operated sub-sea robotics (ROVs) in the Gulf of Mexico. I have hiked to Everest base camp, dived in the kelp forests of SoCal, and crossed the Atlantic on a boat, becoming an Emerald Shellback in the process (gold stars if you know what that means!).
I love running and camping and diving; libraries, reading and writing. I’ve been known to frequent yoga studios and meditation centers; I can commonly be found eating, talking about eating, cooking, or grocery shopping. I also enjoy time with friends and love to embark on urban adventures. Professionally, I am currently doing PR for a national hair care company, and moving toward self-employment. Or a bestselling novel, also in progress. Well, in my mind, at least.
