About

 

8366869.87

I am a native, die-hard Floridian: working hard to pay for our ridiculously high cost of living and to help make the art and culture scene live up to what you would expect from a major, culturally diverse metropolitan area. I’m not burnt out on it yet, but I have those “Georgia on my mind” moments more and more frequently.
