About Me


have a badass trip to Iceland in the dead of winter


I'm a freelancer living in Brooklyn. I like data visualization, kind people, minimalist electronica, and bourbon. Trains are my favorite way to travel.

When I'm not working on cool projects I like walking long distances around the city and tracking my route on maps.


To be born and live variously as possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I couchsurfed through Sweden and Denmark for a few weeks in the summer, and the people I met, the kindness they showed me and the different angle I got of each city made traveling alone full of good connections and conversation. The best!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music-wise, right now I mostly listen to The Field and Lykke Li.

I love Tarkovsky, Wong Kar-Wai, Bergman, and Miyizaki.

I'm currently reading Adorno's In Search of Wagner and Foucault's Discipline & Punish plus a book about dreams by Paul La Farge called The Facts of Winter.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn about what makes you happy. In turn I can teach you how to fry an egg without breaking the yolk.
