I'm a 21-year-old wannabe art-type currently studying for a BA in arts; I expect to graduate in 2012. I was born and raised in Southern California and love it dearly. My name is Finnish; my mom was born and raised in Finland. My father is an American "mutt". I'd have it no other way.
I am the eldest of four. The youngest was adopted from China in 2007 and I tend to talk about her quite a bit. She's one of my greatest inspirations.
I'm also a huge Lord of the Rings and Tolkien geek, if my journal and gallery were not enough hints. Tolkien has changed my life, as cliche as that sounds. I began writing and drawing because of his influence, and now I aim to get into the film industry due to Jackson's films on his books. That must count for something. And yes, I am in love with Aragorn. His lack of reality makes no difference.
I'm a really open person and willing to talk about basically anything. Feel free to send me a note whenever you want.
Current Residence: Middle-earth. Or SoCal. Wherever my mind happens to be at the time.
