This is me, looking artsy.
In real life, I don't look this artsy. I just look like what I am: an aspiring poet/novelist who lives in a hip Chicago neighborhood and wears secondhand paisley tops and prominent glasses. Just a regular gal, you know? I think the reason we all secretly like artsy photos even though we also all hate them a little is that someone had to take them of us and that means someone cared enough to look at us and capture us in a moment where we look profound instead of silly.
I live in Chicago, where I run, write, perform improvised comedy, work at an insurance company (just when you thought I was getting interesting, right?), and drink copious amounts of seltzer water. If you have pressing questions for me, feel free to email them to brenna [dot] lemieux [at] gmail [dot] com.
