About Me

This is my first time surfing! I want to explore all the corners of the world that I haven't seen yet. When I say that, I mean connecting with people with different ways of living, cultures, and philosophies.

I am curiosity in human form. I like wandering off the path, laying on rocks like a lizard in the sun, swimming in rivers, laughing at all of the things, feeling the wind on my skin, eating leaves, live jazz in intimate settings, farmers' markets, wondering why, good stories, playing in the dirt, other peoples' houseplants because mine are all dead, walking barefoot, taking a deep look at everything, cooking new things.
