I enjoy life's simple pleasures: good food, wine, nature, music, and film. As a traveler, I pack light and enjoy seeing new places through a food lens: local markets, produce, meat... and a kitchen to put them together in! I'm a social guest, but not a party animal.
I just finished my Ph.D. in Financial Economics, beginning a new job later this summer, and am spending time in Europe this July.
Someday I hope to open my doors to others on the site, but for now my landlord prohibits it.
