My self-summary
I am a writer at heart, a traveler of the world, a connoisseur of light and solid conversation, a drinker of coffee, a reader of books and a trustworthy friend. I was raised in Portland but I also had the opportunity to live as far away as Geneva Switzerland. I loved it over there; I would return in a heart beat given the chance.
I enjoy riding bikes; cooking delicious meals; playing music or games, like scrabble; hosting dinner parties for friends; getting lost in new wildernesses, cities or woods.
What I’m doing with my life
Wrapping up my degree—English Literature & Writing major—selecting a potential grad school, working on my art and making ends meet. I am grateful to have a job I do enjoy; I sell organic beans at farmers' markets and so on.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, what book to read or film to watch next, why certain things haven't been invented yet, the latest project to gratify my literary ambition and creative side, the people in my life, how to keep growing and creating, bettering myself and my quality of life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Convening with friends, perhaps, going out on the town for a few drinks, a witty play, a foreign film or a live indie concert; writing, writing, writing (sometimes for a submission, and then never without polishing till the last hour I confess; who knows what else?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When only in grammar-school, my parents sent me to a basketball camp in Switzerland ; they assured me that though I should find myself far from home, the staff would be American. Well, to camp I went, and you may be sure, I expected to hear the all too familiar salutations on my arrival there ; but what was my surprise and disappointment, when, instead of this, I was obliged to answer a multitude of questions by a universal shrug, and follow a stream of instructions without being able to decipher word one of the language spoken. The whole camp spoke only Swiss German.
How I managed to survive the long summer which proceeded, you shall hear, when I find myself disposed to write.
