About Me

Hello! I'm currently working London traveling with my partner Riley who is doing an MA in Research Architecture here. Riley is an artist (multimedia but particularly interested in video and printmaking) and I study art practitioning (like curating and event-making and such).

Music, Movies, and Books

Authors for fiction whom I love: Zadie Smith, Barbara Kingsolver, Junot Diaz
TV: Atlanta, Transparent, Arrested Development, and I cry at almost every episode of Modern Family.

What I Can Share with Hosts

If it's the season and there are elderflower trees, we can make you some elderflower syrup (goes well with a gin and tonic or some tea!). We can also make you some great veggie chilli or tacos (or anything else, you name it)! Other than that, we're happy to share thoughts on anything, art, politics, TV, music, etc.
