My last post
was a tough one to put out there. It required a whole bunch of "It's okay if people hate you" thoughts to finally push the Publish button. Sometimes writing and publishing on the internet is like that. It's free and easy, but the world … Continue Reading ››
I've spoken out about sexual assault once before
on this website and I now need to revisit it, because it has revisited me. Two years ago I was held against a wall, against my will, by a man twice my size. This year, two men grabbed me on my … Continue Reading ››
Walk in someone else's shoes, or at least, eat their food.
Experience a culture through the one ceremony every human on the planet partakes in: dinner. In five years of doing so, I've brought home one simple fact; we are all the same. Currently, there are seven billion humans living on this … Continue Reading ››

I spent the month of October living in van, driving up and down the Portuguese coast in search of waves and ambience. While the connection was sometimes non-existent, when … Continue Reading ››
