I grew up in the Midwest (United States), and was an extremely pasty kid due to my time in front of the computer and behind a book. Not much has changed, except now I have a degree in structural engineering. I currently live with my dog, Stella, in Seattle. When I’m not in front of a computer, I like to go for long hikes in the mountains, read Victorian era and non-fiction literature, and fulfill my cottagecore aspirations with freshly made bread. You can reach me on the bird site at @byelanie.
