About Me


to be fully present in the moment


I like antiquated words, the smell of bleach, and dancing idiotically. Not necessarily at the same time.

I'm trying to take life in one moment at a time.

I am respectful, a good listener, quirky, and openminded.

I've travelled extensively, but prefer immersion over dabbling. I grew up all around the world, USA, South Africa, and Poland, and spent my semester abroad in Turkey.


the world is so much bigger than just you.


music, esp live music.
art museums, libraries, and other quiet spaces.
poetry and short novels.
bicycles, early morning rides or late night rides.
lazing around outside.
cooking real meals.

Music, Movies & Books

books: gabriel garcia marquez, ts eliot, the beat poets.
music: jazz (esp bebop), classical (esp romantic), and a random smattering of bands: The Magnetic Fields, The Books, Thao, Alabama Shakes, Massive Attack
movies/shows: Arrested Development, Peep Show, The Diving Bell and Butterfly, Man on Wire, Into the Wild, The Royal Tenenbaums

One Amazing Thing I've Done

In the southeastern part of Turkey at the Tigris River, we stood in golden wheat fields rustling at the top of a hill, staring out at the old cave houses and ancient Ottoman tombstones. This was the beginning of all civilization.

Teach, Learn, Share

Although I don't play anymore, theoretically I should be able to teach you some classical guitar, like how to read sheet music and what that means on the fret board. I know some basic music theory too.
And I can cook vegetarian things and maybe some Chinese things.
