About Me


To stop being such a salami


Writing, graffiti, breakdancing, dorky dance moves, swimming in the ocean all day long, laughing at bad jokes, reading in a hammock, funny phrases in other languages, eating ice cream, train wreck TV shows, sippin' on gin and juice

Music, Movies, and Books

Magnetic Fields, Beat Happening, Calvin Johnson, Built to Spill, Handsome Family, The Mountain Goats, Jens Lekman, Jason Anderson just to name a few. Anything bhangra or Bollywood. All old skool rap and hip-hop.

I read. A lot. The latest book that I adored was "Half of a Yellow Sun" by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Gay bar. Chelsea. 2007. The entire room erupts into a singalong of the Golden Girls theme song, "Thank You for Being a Friend." We all sing at the top our lungs, on repeat, as the former Blanche Devereaux walks through the bar.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm pretty skilled at the art of losing and finding things.

Countries I’ve Visited

Brazil, Ecuador, France, Germany, India, Jamaica, Netherlands, South Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Uruguay

Countries I’ve Lived In

Argentina, Guyana, Ireland, United States
