About Me


Next trip: Lap around the Mediterranean!


I'm a Californian living and working in Germany. I love playing the guitar, discovering new music, drinking interesting beers, leaning languages, and meeting people from different cultures.

I'll be moving to New York City in August to start my PhD and I'm totally excited. I'm about to embark on an epic trip around the Mediterranean, so I hope to meet you along the way!


When you get to a fork in the road, take it.
