About Me

I'm a 20something arts and culture reporter/curator/traveler/mover &shaker here in the big NYC!

Looking to host and make friends here in the City and beyond! I do have a doggie who's very respectful; my partner and I live in Manhattan. Interested in hosting fellow arts world folks, travelers, or even just people with an interest in arts & culture!
