The Author

Edited in Lumia Selfie

Trapped in a world full of repetition and wishing for something better, I am a thirty-year old woman who fancies herself as someone important. Reckless with my own heart and never afraid to say what I think, I spend my days as desk jockey for the corporate world, but at night I am adventurer, clumsy writer, coffee guzzler, and newbie rock climber.

My passions extend to all things great, sad, different, and unattainable. Like most people in the world I want to see and do more, travel to the unknown places, try the strange foods, and enjoy life as much as possible. I was that kid who hauled around a backpack full of books that kept my memory sharp and fantasies alive and never backed down from a dare even if it resulted in scraped knees or an embarrassing memory. I grew up wanting to be either a contemporary writer or human rights lawyer. As an undergrad I was lucky enough to have wonderful professors who encouraged me to break away from my comfort zones. By the time I was twenty-two I found myself living in London attending grad school at the University of London. Not only did I meet wonderful people who have become life-long friends, but I also got to explore a bit of the world on my own and discover that there is so much more out there than what you read in books or see on TV.

For now, I find myself one of the many lucky residents of the city of San Diego. As a native Southern Californian the city provides the comforting feeling of home. The vision – to establish myself for the time being, making San Diego my future home base. The mission – to travel the world and once again live abroad. The guiding principles – write, write, write, and write. Document everything. Comment on the world, love, sex, politics, and the randomness that seems to drive most of our life decisions.
