About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My current mission is to experience (and try to understand) as many different view points on life as I can.

ABOUT ME

I love people, the written word, and creating. Anything hands on is bound to become a favorite activity be that knitting, collaging, painting, filmmaking, writing, baking, or fort-building. I also love reading. I adore experiencing new places and points of view and spending time with like-minded explorers of the world.

Donc, j'essaie de traduire pour les français du monde! J'aime le contact avec les gens, je suis plus à l'aise en public. J'adore les mots (dans plusieurs langues), et je suis très créative. Je fais du tricot, crochet, et je couds aussi. J'aime écrire et faire des courts-métrages. Pour moi, le monde est vraiment une huître prêt à ouvrir, et j'ai hâte d'explorer. Voulez-vous m'aider?

PHILOSOPHY

Be kind. Be open. Be present.
