I never realized the fairy tale aspect to my home until I went to school at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. That's when I realized I've had some unique experiences. I remember the 2 week power outage after a snow storm buried our cars, the night I apexed a mountain at midnight with the sun still shining, flew in a bush plane to get to school, and the moose encounters that range from hilarious to terrifying.
