About Me


to be able to read Arabic, Persian and French lit + poetry


Geography says a lot about a person....I was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Southern California. I've been living on/off in San Francisco since college started. I somehow ended up living in Paris and even more mysteriously, found myself living in Syria.

I'm now in Sacramento and have a place to host, although I don't know why anyone would come here.
