About Me


Work hard and be nice to people. Everything after that is out of your control.


I like to think I'm an independent person that has a tendency to do impulsive things, which keeps life interesting. Minimalism is something I try to abide by, but in this day and age it can be hard. Right now, I'm living the Portland dream working as a baker at a neighborhood coffee shop and biking everywhere I go.

Baking, running, reading cooking, and traveling are all things that occupy at least 95% of my time.
