I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal... I have many leather-bound books, and my apartment smells of rich mahogany. Impressive (or not so impressive) book collection aside, I'm a world traveler. I've visited 23 countries and half of the US states. I call southern California home but have been in Philly for six years now. I love adventures, wearing cowboy boots, picnics in the park, road trips, random dance parties, anything miniature, and laughing out loud. I mean, seriously, are there many things better in life than laughing? (Bacon is a close rival). I also enjoy: art, music, being grammatically correct, cooking/baking, white Converses, intellectual conversations, antique stores, Trader Joe's sweet potato chips, and witty independent films.
I strive for authenticity and find honesty-the real, vulnerable kind-to be refreshing. I love people, especially my amazing family and friends. My faith is also a significant part of my life and fuels my passion for people and for social justice. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, but I constantly strive to be the best version of myself.
