About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To learn and meet new people. I am not meant to be a turtle in a shell.

ABOUT ME

Me? This is always the awkward part of stuff like this. Ok, I've more of less been planning a trip to Europe since I was about 15 and in 2009 it became a reality. I look forward to meeting new people and being out of my element. New York is all I've ever really known, I love it but I also love the idea of taking nice long breaks from it. I love hosting other people, but my current living situation doesn't allow it.

PHILOSOPHY

Make love, not war.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Uh...my Eurotrip in 2009.

Teach, Learn, Share

Lesson #1: Rinse quinoa with cold water in a mesh strainer for 1 minute, then cook. I had to learn this the hard way.

Lesson #2: The Q train ALWAYS runs express, no matter what time of night.
