About Me




Growing up in Brooklyn allowed me to be a frequent museum goer and culture explorer. I love the excitement of cities and the mix of people it attracts but I also crave the countryside. I learned Spanish in part to talk to more people and to generate ease in travelling. I studied in Spain for a year in sunny Alicante and a year later returned to Galicia, Spain as an English teaching assistant. Both times I lived with a mix of Europeans, who I happily have been able to visit with since in their home countries. After returning to my home in NYC for a year I am moving to San Diego to create a new adventure with my tattooist partner.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books by Milan Kundera
Garcia Marquez - starting to try to read him in Spanish!
