About Me

I'm currently an au pair in Liepaja, working for an absolutely lovely family. From the states, I'm an avid fan of all things creative and performance and I looove to sing and make music with others. I'm a huge fan of hockey as well. While the family I work for is Russian so I am primarily learning Russian while in Latvia, I would love to learn more than three phrases in Latvian ('paldies' 'ludzu' and 'atvainojiet'). I love learning about anything and everything but especially about other languages and culture.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - favorite artist is Ingrid Michaelson, but I love anything in the folk/indie/rock genre :)
Books - depends! I enjoy most fantasy books.
Movies - I don't have the attention span for them most of the time! D:
