Who am I?
I'm a poet, filmmaker, & writer originally from Portland, Oregon. Since 2006 I've lived in London, New Orleans, Brooklyn, & Los Angeles. As a kid I ventured to Victoria, BC, Paris & Sydney. I'm now using LA as my home base for seeing the world! I traveled a lot in my early twenties & I'm getting back into it after a chunk of time with regular jobs & a long list of responsibilities.

Stay tuned for adventures from wherever the road takes me!
