My name is Lena. I’ve lived in Fairbanks for the past 10 years. I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, but moved to the U.S when I was 3 years old. I grew up in Houston, TX and Rochester, NY, followed by short stints in Hamilton, NY, San Antonio, TX, Santa Barbara, CA, Antarctica, and Berkeley, CA. I’ve moved around a bunch, but now Alaska is home!
My background is in Geology and Geophysics. However, I’ve had to do quite a bit of layout and some design for my job – with no formal training – so I’m hoping this class will help my work look a lot more professional (and take a lot less time). I look forward to improving my skills and learning with you all.
