After graduating from the University of Vermont and majoring in Political Science and Religion, Melissa Morano lived in New York, working in finance and not getting nearly enough sleep. Her growing disinterest and discomfort with the current political climate in the United States have led her to undertake a self-imposed exile, as she remains committed to learning more about the globalizing world. Presently she is traveling abroad and engaging with new people, places, and cuisine. She has spent time in Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Greece, and Morocco so far this year, and is looking forward to traveling in Sicily and Portugal during the upcoming fall. Her on-location observations inspire her artwork and her writing. She has one self-published work entitled How to Look Worse and Feel Ordinary: Antipoems for Modernity and is working on a collection of essays. When she is not reading, writing, or painting she can be found eating. Follow her travels on Instagram.
