Hello, it’s me, Mab. I am 30 something, married to a guy named Andrew and we are on a big adventure together (spoiler alert: it’s life – the adventure is life).
I was born in New York and made my way 2,800 miles across the US to Seattle by way of a 4 year layover in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for a college degree. In 2016, my husband Andrew, myself, and our cat Henna, moved 4,800 miles to Tallinn, Estonia.
A little bit more about me: Like most people, I don’t write enough. I sometimes don’t read enough, and usually I also don’t sleep enough.
My previous job was working for a small company where I wore a lot of hats, mostly database work and keeping the inventory updated and humming. Before that I’d been an elementary school teacher, a translator, a mentor, a community organizer, an astronomy observatory assistant, a freelance editor, and I even did my time in food service and retail as well. I’m your basic well rounded modern woman who traded in her big dreams for putting food on the table and keeping a roof over my head.
My favorite things in life are socks, cooking, languages, having long discussions about the nature of humanity, and analyzing media and pop culture. I run a food / recipe blog that I update (at least) bi-weekly here.
Writing about yourself is a sort of text based uncanny valley so we’ll agree that’s enough about me for now.
