Introduction
Former VFX technician, prior Marine, feminist, geek. Current MA student at UCC. Sometimes travel blogger @tourabsurd. Academic tweets @questionsandtea. LinkedIn: http://t.co/7LkoSo9cm7

I'm a dual US/UK citizen who grew up entirely American (although I do like tea). Lived in Italy for 3 years, now living in Ireland. I wrote a travel / photo / humor blog for about 4 years before heading back to school to pursue postgraduate work. I've recently started playing Ingress, which is getting me out into the fresh air and keeping me active. Great, geekly fun!
