When not eating Dole Whips, I'm a curriculum developer at a science museum. I'm also the writer behind the stories in Theme Park Tourist's  Legend Library. A big fan of tropical hideaways, Victorian boardwalks, mid-century tomorrows, romanticized streetscapes, and cursed forests, the only thing I love more than themed entertainment is telling the stories behind it.
