Hi. I’m Amber. I grew up in Red Wing, MN. Although I have attended many universities, I have yet to graduate from any of them due to just not liking being tied down to showing up to stuff, man. It should be said, however, that I did maintain a 4.0 at all academic institutions and was even a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, a point I regularly make to my father whenever he tries to bring it up. Instead, I traded in formal education for life experiences in exotic locales such as India, England, and Iowa. I’m the author of the novel Holiday Chick, the Director of Creative/Social Media at Groucho Sports Supply, and the long-time blogger of An Amber-Colored Life (chosen as one of the Top 10 Minnesota Blogs That Deserve Your Attention in 2010 by MinnPost). I also appeared in the web-video series Chasing Windmills and in the upcoming feature film The System. I’m a lover of campfires, stars, folk music, beer, ice skating to Air Supply, bodies of water, slow dancing, pine trees, and this crazy thing called the internet. I’v heard it’s going places.
