I'm a 29 year old reader and writer originally from New Orleans. I grew up in a passive solar house in the woods in Knoxville. I studied European history first at Oberlin and later at Columbia. I enjoy fixing surprise meals from vegetables, biking, hiking and finding ice cream shops! When I am visiting a place, I like to walk around it, sometimes with a map, sometimes without. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, easily. Berlin and Seattle are places I felt immediately at home, I'm still not sure why, but I remember them better than New York, where I've lived for four years.
