About Me

Currently in Barcelona doing a semester abroad!

I grew up in NH, went to art school, dropped out to move to Paris and "find myself" (aka put off making major life decisions). Now I'm going to school in Boston....back in art school! When I graduated high school I backpacked all over Europe and before then had never really traveled much. I'd love to visit every continent someday, except Antarctica because as much as I love penguins I don't think it's worth it.

My philosophy...

"I think we all have a core that's ecstatic, that knows and that looks up in wonder. We all know that there are marvelous moments of eternity that just happen. We know them."
-Coleman Barks

"Why is it, that a dog, sleeping in the sun, is so beautiful, y'know, it is, it's beautiful, but a guy, standing at a bank machine, trying to take some money out, looks like a complete moron?"
-Before Sunrise

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My friend Sarah and I stealing bread from a cafe table in Venice and running through the alleys after someone saw us, laughing and eating bread all the way. It was the perfect Aladdin moment.
