About Me



i'm a spacey queer travel writer coming to a town near you.


"walk slowly, drink a lot of water"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


participating in non/anti-capitalist ways of living our lives is important. because traveling can be transgressive and not just a privilege for people with money. because no one should be left out on the street.


a LOT.


typewriters, books, qtpoc art and activism, wine, talking about neo imperialism tbh
