About Me




I did my university in London for four years, minus the semester I spent in Italy - three weeks in Florence and three months in Rome. I've seen a lot of the places in between those, and a fair amount of places not.

Life keeps moving me around. After returning to Ohio for a while after finishing university in Europe, I got a job in my profession using my degree and all in Atlanta, Georgia and thought I'd be there a while. Turns out not.

Now I'm in Korea teaching English. I'm starting to get that it's kinda pointless to plan too far ahead. Now after being here five years, I'm about to switch to a job at an English newspaper.

Camel trekking into the foothills of the Sahara in Morocco, Templestay at Beakdamsa in South Korea, wandering about Brownsea Island in England, Roma Derby in Rome, the Ghetto Burger in Atlanta, skydiving in Ohio, trekking in the world's oldest rainforest, and the amazing times I've spent with amazing friends all over the world are other highlights.
