About Me


Live simply and experience the world.


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.


"We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust." - RUMI


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

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to cook! And like cooking with people.
I also like to talk about the obscure nature of the humanities - theories around language, art, literature, film...

What I Can Share With Hosts

Right now we have a separate movie room that can host two people comfortable (one on each couch) and we also have a small separate bathroom you can use. A shower can be found upstairs in our bathroom. We have two cats (Orbit & Lemonjello) and one dog (Luna). If you don't like animals this is NOT the place for you.
