My self-summary
I've been in NYC for almost four years after living in London for grad school and spending some time in the Middle East. I love music, I would describe my tastes as usually falling into the not-very-descriptive category of indie rock.

I play the guitar and the ukulele, but i'm not a particularly talented musician. I like to spend my time reading (favorite author: John Fowles), watching movies, and traveling. Hanging out with friends is also important to me.

I love to cook, and I like to think I am pretty damn good at it. I'm pretty sure Anthony Bourdain has the best job in the world.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for an international relations and diplomacy related NGO.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
