About Me

Mostly I just want to be outside singing all the time, or inside cooking good food with friends, talking about what's inspiring us this week.

I love biking, rock climbing (wanna go?), and playing music. I do a lot of exploring.

To sum up: My life has been a whirlwind of moving a lot and meeting amazing people and laughing and dancing badly and working on sweet stuff...why not come over and swap life stories? :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: The Red Tree by Shaun Tan...look it up when you're feeling lost, it will totally change your life. Picture books for adults? The best.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sailing from Panama to Colombia on a tiny boat, another CSer and I were on the deck at 3am looking for boats on the horizon. The captain said we'd see them by their lights, and we should wake him if they got close to us.

The only problem was,
there were stars above us (the most stars I'd ever seen, with no light pollution for hundred of miles in every direction),
stars below us (effervescence in a million colours),
and we were trying to pick out stars on the horizon. It was maybe the most difficult and most magical challenge I've ever attempted.
