A few of my favorite things: Bookstores, coffee shops, spicy food, history lessons. Tattoos, burlesque shows, academic talks, social justice initiatives. Folk music, feminist critiques, political theory, conversations that carry on into the wee hours of the morning. I live to travel, travel, travel - planes, trains, and the great American (European?) road trip. I am equally as enamored with the city and the country, and can do as well navigating a foreign transit system as I can the hiking trails.
I make every effort to live my life with kindness, compassion, and a good sense of humor, and like to surround myself with people who do the same.
