I grew up in Northern California and came to Portland to go to art school. The only other place I've lived was upstate New York where I spent three semesters at a private liberal arts college. But! I've traveled a lot. Over 12 countries and about the same amount of US States. I'd like to do a lot more traveling.
I can be massively shy.
I collect vintage/antique cookbooks. I love fiction, too, especially short stories.
I love food and will eat pretty much anything but I must admit to having a low spice tolerance. I've been trying to figure out how to increase it without too much pain.
Six things that I totally love and appreciate:
1. friendly humans
2. friendly animals
3. tasty food
4. the internet
my laptop which has a broken five key (and socks!)
6. thrift shops
