One Fact About Me
I lived in an isolated island community in Alaska for nine years, working as the director of the local arts agency. I spent many long winter evenings making completely un-functional wearable art, and modeled them in our signature arts event. For example, picture a larger-than- life ensemble made of some amalgam of dryer ducts, mosquito netting, lamp shades, ski poles, and red satin sheets. (You'll invent a great image that may look nothing like what I made, but... you get the idea!)
