About Me


to go wherever the wind blows


hmmm. i went to a small college in the middle of nowhere, lived in portland or, chicago il and seattle wa. i had decided that i'd like to travel and experience the world while i am still young so i came to new zealand, on the other side of the world, as a starting point.

since then, i have traveled a bit, worked a bit, and been somewhat of a wanderer inbetween. i love music and film, and i occasionally strum on my guitar. i can make a decent pizza and would like to eventually start baking my own bread. love talking about anything and everything over a drink.

currently i have settled down temporarily in wellington, new zealand. if you are a fellow traveler or are living in the city, feel free to message me. i'm always up for meeting new people!

2014 update: I had a fantastic time living in Wellington for two years. Learned to bake, befriended the locals, picked over a million apples (as well as many other fruits!) and made many new friends.

Ended up hopping the ditch and am now residing in Melbourne Australia! I have been living here for over two years now!


surrounding myself with good-natured people has worked so far.
