My home is in the Finger Lakes area of New York State, but I am currently traveling and working as an English tutor. In my spare time, I write short stories and poetry, ride bicycle, run, practice yoga, read, and watch indie films.
When I’m traveling I like to make new friends, visit art museums, see historic sites, take long walks, and sit in cafés.
