About Me


But suddenly now, I know where I belong/ it's many hundred miles but it won't be long


I'm a former student at Vanderbilt U. in Nashville who studied U.S. history, anthropology, and Italian. Now I'm filling in the time before grad school and real life with internships and the like.

My interests are pretty eclectic, but revolve mainly around music, books, knitting, and letterboxing. Have you ever met a mild-mannered knitter with a penchant for 70s shock rock? ...Would you like to?
It's not as bad as it sounds.


"It's no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." - Krishnamurti

"I wanna see through all the lies of society
To the reality, happiness is at stake
I wanna hold up my head with dignity
Proud of a life where to give means more than to take
I want to live beyond the modern mentality
Where paper is all that you're really taught to create"
Oxygen, Willy Mason

"Take it easy, but take it." - Woody Guthrie


MUSIC & TRAVELLING, knitting, reading, letterboxing, making stuff out of other stuff, photography, trespassing, manic dancing to cheesy 70s pop, finding something to live for.

*Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Italy -- indescribable.
*Although I also once saw a guy on a highway driving his motorcycle while standing on the seat.

Teach, Learn, Share

My skills are various and sundry, but unfortunately don't always fall into the category of real life skills. However, if you want to learn to knit, make French toast, or unravel the public transportation system of Oklahoma, I'd love to help.
