about the writer
As a friend of mine recently put it, “She is an American living in a place called Pau in France with her Venezuelan boyfriend and two Italian cats, writing for a UK-based magazine about issues in Latin America. One could say that she is the personification of ‘internationalization.’ Well, she or Captain Planet.“
I was raised in California and Alaska and I went to college in New York. I learned how to be a self-sufficient traveler at a young age and I have spent most of the past seven years abroad, living in India, then in Venezuela and now in France. I have visited several dozen other countries and plan on visiting many, many more.
In this space I am trying to bring together fragments from so many seemingly different places, episodes of my life, and versions of myself. My hope is that I can show some of the beautiful, the ridiculous, the poignant, the terrible and the amazing things I have seen and experienced in conjunction with my current adventures.
And I hope that in composing this blog, connections are created – between moments, between places, between ideas and perhaps between people.
