I was raised by the internet in a dreamy summer haze of deserts & cold ocean water. I have the gnarliest sandle tan, the loudest laugh of any introvert, and the window into my soul is probably my eyebrows. I like climbing mountains and drawing comics because it makes me feel free.
Original Californian, spent some time on the road hitchhiking & wild camping in Europe and NZ and living in Berlin. Came back to climb & walk the Sierra, chasing the alpine summer.
what I'm up to lately
Feeling extraordinarily lucky to be weathering the long dark night of COVID with a nest of dog training books, good flatmates in a bright house, a thoughtful employer, and the Sierra in my backyard.
My dog doesn't have an instagram, but she does have a peakbagger account.
