Andréa Fernandes

Andréa Fernandes earned her bachelor's degree from a small, Hogwarts-esque Philadelphia college. Because of her fascination with magazines great and small, she designed her own major, Publication & Culture, and enjoyed making all the executive decisions. She's lived in 6 states, traveled to 6 foreign countries, and attended courses at 4 different colleges. Her past jobs have found her dressing up in Renaissance garb, reading books and spilling coffees, counseling tween girls, and surfing the 'net. In her spare time, she enjoys shopping (and tweeting about it) and reading (and obsessively keeping track of her books).
