I am always a proud Oregonian, a musician, a bicycle dandyist, & pretty passionate, especially where my friends, family, & alternative transportation are concerned. I’m also fond of languages, editing, rugby, Portland beer, cooking together, & great whistlers.

I am a Reed alumna (prospective B.A., music, 2011) and in 2010, I finished and defended an undergraduate thesis on a chamber piece by Maurice Ravel. I spent the fall and winter of 2008 in Florence, studying & learning how to savor my surroundings. That experience was what spurred the creation of this blog. I maintain it now in order to share with you, the greater world, the things I love and find wonderful.
