A crossword aficionado and admirer of all things antique. Who drinks massive amounts of coffee and is homesick for places I've never traveled. Loves to peruse old bookstores and the smell of aged, yellowed pages. Enjoys long train rides and imagining the interesting, idiosyncratic lives commuters lead. The city skyline always makes my heart beat faster. But my mind often wanders to the profound silence of Muir Woods. Finds rain-streaked windows and floods of morning light equally lovely. Believes cheerfulness is found in the form of well-worn sneakers, Volkswagen buses, and malts in metal cups. I'm smitten with the details--life so full of delicate bits and pieces, moments that should be savored. It is through the lens that I've found a medium to share my immense appreciation for the world.
