Hello! My name is Ashley. I am a twenty-something, living in So. California and dreaming of adventures pretty much anywhere else. I come from a large family with of larger than life eccentrics. I am the eldest of 7, all of whom were homeschooled. At age 6 I wanted to be a fashion designer. At age 7 I wanted to be a fashion designer and singer. At age 8 I wanted to be a fashion designer, singer, and mama. And I still want that. I'm a self-taught seamstress and classically trained Opera Singer (but I sing just about anything that fits my fancy). I play the guitar (poorly) and Ukulele (mediocre-ly), and am learning to play the Mandolin. Music is a huge part of my life and maybe someday I'll get paid to do it. 

In the Autumn of 2011 I moved to Corvallis, Oregon to attend Oregon State University. I never finished my degree, but my time there had a huge impact on me. There I got to perform as Pamina in Mozart's Die Zauberflote (The Magic Flute) and I might talk about that a little too much. It definitely is in my top five favourite life experiences. I miss Oregon everyday and someday I hope to move back, though I'd like a less Student Loan ridden path.
I'm happiest in the rain, or in a forest. I still bite my nails, I drink too much coffee, and have never been known to turn down a sweet. When I grow up I would like to be a cross between Judy Garland, Helena Bonham Carter, Dorothy Gale, Anne Shirley, Nancy Drew, Kate, Bush, a Mermaid, and a Faerie.
