About meI'm a CEO, multidisciplinary artist, and film curator living in Madison. I’m a Disney nerd, avid crafter, and I love cooking and entertaining.

About my libraryI've been collecting and making zines, artist books, and graphic novels since I was a teenager. To me, it always seemed like art that I could afford to collect. For a quirky selection, click on my tag "accumulations".

I studied literature (among other things) as an undergrad at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University, and as a graduate student at the University of Chicago. Some of the things that I was particularly interested in were 19th century French and British literature, British literature of WWI and WWII, foodie books and foodie culture, Irish literature, performance studies, and poetry. My collection reflects many of those interests.

Lately I have been reading a lot of urban fantasy novels for pleasure, from Neil Gaiman and Garth Nix and Charles de Lint to the awesome feminist scifi novels my brother has introduced me to, by Nnendi Okorafor and N.K. Jesimin.
