I am a graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary, with a master’s degree in Theology and the Arts–exploring the conversation between the world of faith and the world of arts and culture. And that is propbably the most boring way to put it, and tells you the least about me. I’m also a wife, mom, and a shield-maiden of God.
So for now, let me spice it up with the most random things I can think of off the top of my head:
I am 5′ 2.75″ tall.
A long time ago, in a land far far away, I was working on a double major in history and english, when I decided to take a break from college, toured the western US as an actress for a year, and then went back to school. It was an amazing experience that changed the trajectory of my entire life.
I met my husband in Disneyland. Yep, you read that right. Disneyland. For realz.
Although I come from a rather sporty town, I participated in no sports as a kid. None. I don’t even ski.
I am a stereotypical female chocolate addict.
I can multitask to the point of getting nothing done. But I get stuff done. Sometimes. Most of the time. By God’s grace, I even get a lot done when it’s needed.
I am crafty. In many senses of the word.
I have a nearly uncontrollable urge to tap-dance when I am alone in an elevator.
For two wonderful, hectic years, I happened to be the president/artistic director/managing director/general slave to The Fuller Company; the one and only theatre entity at Fuller Theological Seminary. I would geek out with excitement when people like Andy Crouch or Dr. Richard Mouw would show up to our performances. It became one of the most important parts of my life at Fuller Seminary–in the end it was my unofficial thesis project and swan song to one of the best times of my life.
