About Me

CURRENT MISSION

So live! So that when thy summons comes to join that innumerable caravan ...

ABOUT ME

I love languages, the Middle East, film, eggplant, the former Soviet Union, double bass, pomegranates, classical music, jazz, colorful sneakers, and lentils.

I love spending time near the Black Sea, in the Caucasus, near city views, on hiking trails, sitting on top of mountains, on my yoga mat, and chopping something tasty by my stove.

PHILOSOPHY

Do good. Be Kind. Share.
