About Me


To unicycle more than 20 feet.


I can unicycle in a consistently wobbly line for about 10 feet. I love music, films, good food, dictionaries, talking to people, and pretty much anything French. I'm vegan, and love to cook for people. Currently, I'm trying to spend a bit more time on photographic projects outside of university..
"To anna (vb) - has connotations of semi-voluntary involvement in a mildly surreal succession of mini-adventures."


To be as beautiful as the chance meeting upon an operating table of a sewing machine and an umbrella.
