to make the world safer for art and be present for people
I'm currently living in New Zealand on a perm visa but my heart still makes me a new yorker. I haven't seen much of the South Island and am hoping couchsurfing will help connect me with more folks down south.
I make things with my hands (zines, books, photographs, etchings, bad drawings) and equally love to explore the world through books and through travel. I'm a friendly introvert, and love hearing about people's lives over strikingly good coffee or a cup of earl gray. I used run a community art space in Auckland called Alphabet City with my sweetie. We love old printing technology.Also, I never smell like patchouli, but often smell like lavender.
