About Me


friendly and spontaneous! :)

I was born in New York City, and raised in Indiana (the midwest/countryside of America).

I've mostly lived in San Francisco since 2007, but also about a year in Boston and Vietnam.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love film/music/reading. It's overwhelming to pick favorites, but some artists I love are: Kanye West, Radiohead, The Beatles, Sublime, Bob Dylan, Portishead, and oh so many more.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Fell in love on the other side of the world, with a girl that couldn't speak a word of my language.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've been involved with NGOs building schools in Vietnam and Cambodia, and occasionally do what I can independently for schools and children in need. Would love to collaborate with anyone doing good work in the world, particularly in the areas of education and poverty.

Trying to learn Vietnamese & Japanese...and would love to practice or help you with English!
