About Me


to let life happen


Hey I'm Michelle, studying in New York at the moment! I'm up for hanging out, showing people around and anything else really. I just want to keep traveling, making friends and see as much of this beautiful world as I possibly can. It's nice to just walk around, explore and talk about everything and anything.


Food is delicious and meant to be eaten


hiking, rock climbing and spelunking, though I am rather new at all of those things. In my free time I love catching shows or reading. I'm a big cinemaphile and I love stand-up comedy and beat poetry. I read a lot and am constantly wanting to try new things.

Music, Movies & Books

I love Jaco Pastorious, Billie Holiday, Modest Mouse, Herbie Hancock, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, TV on the Radio, The Who, The Smiths, Gramatik, Marvin Gaye, Trombone Shorty, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Passion Pit, Nosaj Thing, etc... Music is wonderful.

As for reading there are just too many things but I am a huge Vonnegut, Murakami, Nietzsche, Nabokov and DeLillo fan.

Movies I love blaxploitation films and cult films of any kind. I also love comedies: Monty Python, Spinal Tap, Judd Apatow films, Charlie Chaplin films etc.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Camping anywhere, everywhere, the feeling of laying out under the stars is unbeatable no matter where I am.

Countries I've Lived In
