About Me


to become a professional explorer


i want to travel world, but i'm starting with little bits and pieces.

Music, Movies, and Books

all kinds of music, mostly of the live variety. i have three bookshelves full of books so i can't even answer that question...i guess my favs would be Jonathan Safran Foer, Margret Atwood, Bukowski, Flannery O'Connor. as for movies i love documentaries (especially ones about food, other cultures or stickin' it to the man), foreign and indie films, like anything by Cédric Klapisch's (although "Paris" is my all-time favorite) and "A Complete History of my Sexual Failures", and of course mindless slapstick comedies..."Anchorman" never gets old. and mumblecore. love mumblecore.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
