I'm originally from Michigan and spent years living in Mexico before moving to Los Angeles. I like being based in a city that is rich in culture, cuisine, landscape, nightlife, etc. I like to go on long challenging hikes, practice yoga, and move around as much as possible -- especially on the dance floor to cumbia, old soul, R&B, techno, etc. I am an artist and musician so am always searching for new sights and sounds.
When I travel to a new place, I like to immerse myself in my surroundings. I would rather stay in a hut on the beach, than some kind of all-inclusive resort. I like having a dialogue with local residents, and fellow travelers. I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to food, and am always searching to try new cuisine - especially on the spicy side.
I have spent time traveling in Europe, Mexico, South America and Canada, but would love to travel just about anywhere.
I enjoy the writings of Paul Bowles, Roberto Bolaño, Don Delillo and Haruki Murakami, and films by Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Robert Altman, Agnès Varda and Michelangelo Antonioni to name a few.
