I grew up living all over the world (Ecuador, the Bahamas, Côte d'Ivoire, Dominican Republic, Switzerland, India, Chicago) and recently moved to Sydney. So far, I love it.
Living all over has exposed me to so many cultures. I'm glad that it's given me a very open mind, a lot of empathy and a strong sense of justice. I think that has a lot to do with why I identify as a liberal, progressive, feminist and advocate for the unfairly victimized.
Going to concerts and festivals whenever possible. Last one was Laneway - so good!
Dodging cars every day when cycling to work on the mean streets of Sydney.
Squatting, benching and deadlifting heavy weights. Strength training is my favourite sport and the feeling of satisfaction after an all-out session is hard to beat.
I am also the best thumb wrestler ever! I challenge you to defeat me.
I'm also on Spotify making kickass playlists like every day. If you're also on it let's trade music!
Favorite Authors: Gabriel Garcia Marquez, James Joyce, Lu Hsun, Vladimir Nabokov, David Sedaris.
I've also really been getting into fantasy and have read ASOIAF, Dresden Files, Kingkiller Chronicle, Gentleman Bastards and The First Law series.
Favorite Movies: Pulp Fiction, Taxi Driver, Chungking Express, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, High Fidelity.
I am an unabashed comic book geek. I like super hero comics ok (partial to Marvel) but I'm just a massive fan and proponent of the medium in general. It's adaptable to every conceivable genre and to me it's the best way to tell stories, period.
Music, all the music.
Bathtub - I love taking long baths!
Kitchen knives, I got cooking skills.
My passion for travel and adventure.
I also always - always - have a song stuck in my head.
You have a vivid imagination and like sharing it.
You love pugs.
You stick you hand out the window to feel the breeze on late night drives.
