About Me


I have lived around Boston all my life. I am a very sarcastic person and have been told many times that I am very hard to read. I try not to talk about myself just because I find other people far more interesting. I can be very quiet in certain situations, while other times and I can't stop talking. I love music and I can talk about it for hours, because of this I am trying to learn how to play the guitar/harmonica/piano (as soon as I get one). All I really know is that I like to listen/learn about people who have done/seen interesting things in their lives. I want to go everywhere and see everything.


"...the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the sametime, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn ,burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww!'"
