I'm a media historian, Cornell grad student, weightlifter, dragon boater, ukulele novice, blueberry addict.
I generally travel for work. I tend to look for quiet, comfortable, uncluttered spaces where I can relax, connect to the internet, and cook my morning oatmeal. I treat my hosts' homes as I treat my own--I keep things clean, and treat my neighbors with kindness and respect.
Even though I tend to spend most of my travel time visiting archives, I try to carve out a day (or even half a day!) for fun when I'm away from my home in Ithaca, New York: open-air markets, thoughtfully curated museum exhibits, and peaceful public gardens are my kind of fun. I love coffeeshops, good food, and all kinds of physical activity from yoga to kayaking.
