Educator | Dancer | Video Game Nerd
A snuggly, calm cat who loves tuna and listening to piano music.
Sam + Jenny
I was fortunate enough to meet Sam in college, and we've been inseparable ever since.
A jumpy, talkative cat who loves nothing more than playing with the laser pointer.
A Brief History
Classroom Teacher | 2010 - 2014
After leaving Alaska so Sam could pursue a degree in video game concept art and design, I taught in Forest Grove for a brief time, but ended up chosing to take a break from the classroom to pursue a personal dream: developing a professional dance career.
Dancer | 2014 - Present
Here is the trailer for last year's show, which was 11: Dance Co's debut. As both the producer and a core dancer for this company, I feel very fortunate to have found a group of creative and dedicated people who are now my second family.
Random + Fun
- I am a HUGE video game fan
- Sci-Fi/Fantasy are my favorite genres to read (but I love reading as a whole, and will read anything).
- A few of my nicknames include: Winders, Wisdom, J-Win, and Cupcake.
- I have lived in South Korea, New Zealand, Germany, France, and numerous states in the US.
- I can make my face look uncannily like "Grumpy Cat"...frown and all. This may or may not be considered a "skill", depending on which of my friends you talk to.
