I was born in Nevada in Sept. 1988, and I spent most of my childhood living across from a dairy farm in Meridian, Idaho (a town which has grown significantly since I left). I enjoy various athletic activities (running, lifting, climbing, racquetball) as well as creative endeavors (playing guitar, photography, photoshop). I also really like cats. Since 3/2016 to the last time I checked (5/2019), I hold the Colorado state record for Women's unequipped deadlift at 140 kg (309 lbs) in the 56kg Novice weight class in the Natural Athlete Strength Association.
I am also proud to belong to a family of academics, including my father Prof. Jacob Baker and my aunt Prof. Kris Campbell.
Rescued kittens, Alex (orange) and Piper (gray)- now grown up, healthy, and best friends!

State record for Novice 123 lb (56 kg) weight class - 309 lb (140 kg) deadlift during the NASA 2016 CO State Championships
(I briefly held the national record; it was defeated about six months later.)
I am a metal/rock guitarist, but I also enjoy acoustic. In a previous life, I had a fanbase comprising over 6 million YouTube views and 30,000 Facebook fans (I have even received fan mail and sent autographs as far as Russia!). There is also a Japanese textbook for students learning English which uses my music persona as one of the examples.
