About Me


I've been moving around ever since I was little. My family didn't seem to like staying in one place for very long, and I seem to have carried that along with me. I love traveling. There is no greater joy than exploring unknown beaches, eating mysterious foods, and meeting exciting people. I have a sharp tongue and an open mind. I like people who share these qualities.

I like funky hats, fruit juices, the smell of new books, playing frisbee at the beach, popsicles, women who play the saxophone, the smell of old books, sweat pants.

I don't like cottage cheese, smoke, cold weather, the smell of chlorine, mint chocolate, tucking in my shirt.


As long as its funky...
