love forever, love is free
I've just finished my undergraduate degree and at the moment I'm preparing for a research fellowship in Thailand. Besides serving malay/thai cuisine part-time at school, in the summers I'm usually working on documentary projects either at home or abroad. Two films in Thailand, one in Peru and a hand full at home in Chapel Hill. I'm a beginner cyclist and I love my Trek 520 '89--it gets me everywhere I need to be around Carrboro, NC. Ultimate frisbee, trail-running and hand drumming have recently taken up a lot of my free time, all of course enjoyed with the best of friends.

More recently, I've enjoyed old-school travel writing, expedition logs, especially if its in the vein of "white man goes to asia, has epiphany".
