Music, Movies, and Books

I love going to see live music. Will try anything once, but love hip hop and alt rock. I'm a writer so I looove reading. Digging a lot of non-fiction right now. Also love David Sedaris and Haruki Murakami.

I've seen the sun rise from the top of a mountain in Burkina Faso. Hand fed roos in Sydney. Spent the night karaoking in Japan and travelled Canada by train.
Good times!
