Originally from Bosnia, I now live and work in Alexandria, VA, though Monterey California feels more like home. I lived there for almost 10 years and still dream of returning. For now, though, exploring the East Coast is exciting.
I work for the government but my passion is writing, and I will probably forever consider myself an "aspiring artist." Other hobbies are reading, biking, hiking, meeting new people. My latest adventure has been a trip to Tassajara Zen Monastery in Ventana Wilderness in Central California. I spent two weeks there chopping vegetables, clearing guest rooms, and just being. It was a wonderful experience.
