Music, Movies, and Books

Anything acoustic/folky with killer harmonies. Also into jamming out in the car to top 40.

I have Netflix, otherwise I don't watch television too often.

I'm always reading something, though usually pretty slowly. I'm a big fan of non-fiction.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Volunteered in Africa for half a year, went on safari and saw everything, swam in the Indian ocean, saw Victoria falls, and pet lions and cheetahs.

Lived in London for nine months.

Climbed Mount Washington in the snow with my dog.

Performed with a chorus in front of 2,000 people at the Barbican (one of the largest venues) in London.

Backpacked through Europe for three weeks and stayed with Couchsurfers the whole way.

Traveled through Italy for a week with my sister.

Teach, Learn, Share

Even though I'm young I've traveled a lot and experienced a lot. I've learned enough to know that money is definitely not my priority and that in order to be happy I need to put time and energy into making sure that I'm always doing things that I enjoy.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Zambia

Countries I’ve Lived In

Tanzania, United Kingdom, United States
