About Me


There's always something new to see.


I am no living in Cardiff doing my Masters in Conservation Practice for museums. Sounds weird but really it's just me in a lab with old archaeological stuff, art, and historical objects trying to keep it all together for museums.

I have lived in San Francisco, California and grew up just 40 minutes south in San Jose so this is my home and I love it. The best part is that I've never gotten tired of such an amazing place and it's intriguing people-- be it a tourist or local.


Someone else has probably already said it better:

"It's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world." -American Beauty I'd like to see as much of this beautiful world as I can.

"And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure." -Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Almost everything is an adventure!

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." -Ferris Beuller's Day Off I'm trying really hard not to miss a thing.

I know it may seem a bit cheesy but they're still great lines.
