About Me

***moving to Ottawa on Dec. 17***

Aspiring journalist. Currently finishing my degree in political science and psychology.

I spend the rest of my time hiking, bouldering and finding live music. I'll try anything twice, so show me what you're into. Bonus points if we get a bar story out of it.
