Santa Barbara, Ca

I'm a full-time rambler and contract designer with as many skill sets in my quiver as there are plane tickets in my passbook. I've worked in ornamental iron, jigsaw puzzle design, bookmaking, glass engraving, and a variety of other mediums. I'm currently living out of a backpack as I trek my way around the world.


Couchsurfing with Ana & Pranav

My two new favorite people

The following is an excerpt from my summer journal in 2011, and describes a moment from the first hour of meeting Ana & Pranav, my newest friends and couchsurfing hosts:

I offered Ana Stanić surfing lessons if she were ever to ever visit California, and she smiled sheepishly: “I do not know how that would turn out,” she responded. “I am not so good at sports. When I moved to Norway, I found out about a whole new category of things called ‘winter sports,’ which I also suck at.”

“Yes, but you are good at bowling,” countered Pranav, Ana’s Quebecois colleague from Oslo.

“True!” Ana’s face lit up. “The first time I went bowling, I was very excited. I had shorts and a sports bra and everything!”

Pranav imitated her bowling style, miming a boulder being hurled skyward and crashing violently to the earth, rolling at glacial speeds towards the pins.

Ana giggled, and covered her face with her hands.
