About Me

CURRENT MISSION

make art & read books

ABOUT ME

I love art, design, music, literature.. I am addicted to pretty blogs and the smell of magazines. I have a tattoo addiction.
I read books a lot and am constantly perusing the shelves of dusty used book stores on the hunt for something special.

I lived in Portland, Oregon for a year and am trying hard to get back!

PHILOSOPHY

Say what you need to say and do what you need to do. Be a good person and stop complaining.

Meeting strangers and inviting them all back to our place in Portland, followed by an impromptu 90's sing a long and all night party.. oddly comforting and thrilling at the same time.
