About Me


Discovering Seoul


Travel writer and occasional daisy-chain maker, I have been dreaming of Argentina since I was seventeen.
I will finally make the journey from Mexico to Buenos Aires this year, and am so excited I could hug a bear.

*Somehow ended up in Canada on this trip, trying to figure my way back down to the Latin side. Help?*


Life is beautiful.


Writing, climbing trees, yoga, playing, visiting inspiring art galleries and seeing people MAKE ART, cooking fancy things that look amazing and taste less so...

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Magnetic Fields, Velvet Underground, Pulp (sometimes), Beirut, Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams...

Movies: Give me books, all the way.

Books: Down and Out in Paris and London, George Orwell. White Teeth, Zadie Smith.
Norwegian Wood, Haruki Marukami, David Mitchell, and his weird little tales of talking trees and lost spirits hanging out on Chinese mountain-tops. WALDEN. And so on.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The sunrise from Mount Sinai in Egypt.
All fish.
Dancing in a Mexican bullring with the matador, and for once not feeling shy.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could, mmm, teach the harmonica? Easiest instrument to play, hardest to master - I love it. Everything sounds great!
