YO. I'M TESSA.

the basics

I grew up on Frank Sinatra. I'm an amateur longboarder (as in, I've successfully taught myself how to move a straight line...we're getting there!). Camping, hiking and backpacking are the best way to live summer. Also, if I'm wearing a color other than black today I'll Venmo you a dollar.

the more-than-basics

I was stoked when I learned that there are careers for people like me who are obsessed with humanity—with its flaws, glories, and in-between moments.

To know people is to connect, and to connect is to love. And I think we all can agree that the world could use a little more love these days.
