Author: Tricia Edgar

Tricia Edgar would like to say that she's reclaimed her inner science geek, but she never actually lost it. She loves banana slugs and jumping in the mud, and she thinks that slime molds are groovy. She's also awfully fond of steampunk and upcycled style. By day she is an outdoor educator in Vancouver, Canada, where she can be found modeling the latest trends in rain pants. You can find her at TriciaEdgar.
