About Us

the adventure + rebellion family



I’m the primary writer behind adventure + rebellion. Originally from South Florida, I practically grew up on Main Street USA. After college, I moved to New Orleans. I have a background in nonprofit development and elementary and music education. Outside of this site, I’m also the Science Mom and contribute to several other websites. I love coffee, rock n roll, science, history, literature, and bad television.


My husband grew up in New Orleans. He’s an introverted IT nerd who loves energy drinks, rock n roll, fast cars, conspiracy theories, tinkering, and animals.


Ruby is almost 4. She is wildly intelligent, creative, and tender hearted. She loves outer space, dinosaurs, and art, but dance is her one true love. She’s obsessed with Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Doc McStuffins, the Evil Queen, and My Little Pony.


Lucy is 18 months old. She’s the most independent and fearless kid I know. She’s always smiling and snacking. Her primary interests include playing with breakable things, climbing on things she shouldn’t, trying to dance like Ruby, and watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
