About Me


summer adventure!


partial to oaks, cherries, sycamores, ginkgoes, monkey puzzles, willows, walnuts, birches & pines.

this summer: indoor gardening, inventing quiet little songs, drawing, reading books, learning a new camera, watching lots of soccer, and planning late-season adventures. starting a film club! if you're interested in joining, please get in touch.


today, i wish to live perpetually within the process of becoming quietly extraordinary.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

hum, probably just modestly amazing days and nights in the desert, on the sea, or in the mountains--

Teach, Learn, Share

1. i know a few trees; do you? let's trade!
2. i am aware of at least three delicious ways to prepare kale.
3. (and if your standards are pretty low,) i can teach you how to cook some international delicious things, too!
4. (...from places i've never been, so they're actually adaptations from the nation of me, i guess.)
5. i can make a decent camping shelter from a tarp and some rope!
6. i can teach you how to fold an origami bear. so can youtube, but i am made of real adult.
