About Me


aspiring ex-patriot


i tour the world, ride bikes, and eat well.
i'm down for cooking, listening to records, riding bikes and walking, conversation, animals, people, reading and writing, being alone, being with friends, gardens, museums, crocheting, movement, taking photos, learning, trying to lead by example..


nostalgia is a seductive liar
