Hello. My name is Corrie.

Obligatory Bio

ilivehere
(want to know what it’s like, living in Africa? Bonus reading here…)

Although I’m a passport-carrying, Starbucks-loving citizen of the United States, I’m also a wanderer, an adventurer, and a Delta Frequent Flyer Member who currently calls West Africa home.

Hailing from Boston and a true New Englander at heart, I’ve been known to occasionally “pahk the cah.”

I’m part bookworm. Part history buff. All Gen-Xer with a love for things that tell a story. If you can’t find me, just check the local museum, library, or flea market.

I write. I create. I shape and share stories. I’m a roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-your-hands-dirty type with the heart of an artist, the dedication of an academic, and the grounded sense of justice that inspires me to help give a voice to the marginalized.

Greatest achievements? The three teenagers who call me “Mom” and would rather read books than play video games.

Looking for a place to contribute — in Dakar, Senegal or anywhere else in the world.

If you have room on your team for a wandering-but-ever-connected creative type, let’s talk.
