I am an Architecture and Interior Design student at Parsons The New School of Design in New York. I am originally from Virginia, I was home schooled (yes, I have friends, and yes, I did go to prom--first two questions I get asked about homeschooling!) and grew up with two older brothers and a younger sister. I've been to Italy, France, England, Canada, and have traveled around the states. I love hiking and being outdoors, although I don't get to do much of it in the city! My parents host people from all over the world through Helpx (a similar program to airbnb but a more rural and agricultural background) and I've stayed in people's homes, hostels, tents, airports. I really like meeting new and interesting people and I think it's a nice way to travel and enjoy where you are.
Right now my favorite authors are Bill Bryson and Anne Lamott. The last book I read was Radical Simplicity by Jim Merkel, the photographer, Sally Mann is one of my favorites, and Dominique Appia's painting "Entre Les Trous de la Memoir" is one of my favorite paintings, and the last three bands I listened to on my iPod were Florence and The Machine, The Growlers, and The xx.
Just a little about me in a nutshell. Please feel free to ask anything!
