About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore North America

ABOUT ME

I'm a slightly displaced Southerner getting an education in a lovely Canadian city. My professional life is spent pursuing an Anthropology degree and working at a museum in Vancouver, while most of my free time is spent going to shows, traveling the West coast and sniffing out adventures in Vancouver. I'm big on the word "y'all." I have a hammock, which enables me to sleep just about anywhere.
