About Me


Eating as many pierogi and fried apple pies as I can.


I don't like utensils, I prefer chopsticks or my hands. I brush and floss lots. Smoking is gross.

Drinking still has its novelty, especially wine. I love anything to do with the beach, being outside.

I have a birthmark in my eye.

Sitting and talking is fine, especially with a cup of tea, but I can't really sit still for too long.

I celebrate my dog's birthday every month, mostly because we've come a long way since the potty training days and he is so loyal.

My undergrad degree is going to take me forever, I'm indecisive, I like to mark "student" as my occupation, and there are too many places to travel to in between.

I like learning about theories, especially things that look at why people do the things they do.

I am restless in life and switch jobs frequently.

I'm always down to eat a pint of ice cream or a bag of chocolate.


Put into the universe what you want to get back.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Leave no trace.


Pilates, running and training for races, making origami, digital and 35mm photography, learning about anatomy and entropy, camping, kayaking, hiking, snowboarding, skiing, fishing, psychology. Being outside. Exploring. Being politically and grammatically correct.

I went to Budapest and got tear-gassed.

As well as tons of useless facts about nothing of consequence.
