About Me

about daphneWelcome to The Daph Exchange.

If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s this:

I am a scientist. I recently graduated from grad school and have a bachelor’s and master’s degree in meteorology. I am also creative. Ever since I was little, I loved to write and make things. Writing and I are finally back together after a long break—7 years in a highly technical field will do that to you. So this blog is my outlet, where I’ll take pictures of cool stuff, write whatever I please and share it all with you.

This is my little corner of the web where I share my musings, adventures, inspirations and my ever-expanding list of interests. You’ll find everything here— from travel guides and diy to food and personal essays. I like to wear many hats— ’cause I’m fancy like that sassygirlemoji15

No but really, I just want to see and explore and create things, without being restrained by titles and limitations. This blog is dedicated to those who like to color outside the lines and seek to live an inspired + creative life. 

Art and science are both about uncovering the new and inspiring. They are both about asking questions. I’m always learning and as I explore new things, so will you. My goal is just to grow a little more each day.

Creativity is contagious— I hope we rub off on each other and spark some magic.

I currently live in Orlando, Florida.

I love the city as much as I love the ocean and the mountains.

I have a natural curiosity for humans. People— and their behaviors, backgrounds and experiences fascinate me.

I have a four-legged son named Nolan who is 3 years old and 3 lbs of fur. He is spoiled, needy, attention-greedy and the cutest thing in the world.

I am a Leo. I am also an INFP, which means I’m an introvert. So, basically I’m a rare breed of Leo.

I’m always itching for passport stamps. Travel is my form of therapy.

My favorite food is bread. Yes, I have put some thought into this, and really what it comes down to is…I love bread. Ice cream is a close second.

I am fluent in spanish and emoji.

I collect coffee mugs and hair products.

My favorite music changes almost as much as my favorite color.

Sunflowers, candles and wine make my heart happy.

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.” –Alan Cohen

I’m so happy you’re here. Now, let’s explore.
