About Me
I’m a California native transplanted to the east coast. I’ve been living in Cambridge for the last 15 years, and recently in a beautiful condo close to Harvard University. I graduated from MIT and currently run a school for creative learning. I have traveled extensively around Asia and Europe, and more recently spent time in South America. I am passionate about learning about different cultures, exchanging stories, working on home projects and creating art.
