When I'm not working

label

Learning Pali

I'm a linguistics nerd and bygone student of Latin who will happily spend hours producing a translation of a dead language. I’m currently learning Pali, the ancient written language of the Theravada Buddhist texts.

label

First Veggie Garden

I’m working on my first ever vegetable garden! I’m planting pumpkin, radish, beet, and okra, among others.

label

Practicing French

I majored in French Language & Literature in college, and the French language is still one of my favorites. I spent a year studying in Paris and eating cheese. I hope to visit the Lascaux caves one of these days.

label

Crochet & Embroidery

I have been crocheting since I was 8 years old. You’d think I’d be better at it… I’m also learning how to embroider! I'm a big fan of yarns that are recycled or sustainably and ethically produced.

label

Pastel & Charcoal Drawing

I love the way charcoal and pastel feel. Tactile media are a true delight to work with.

label

Yoga & Meditation

I am certified to teach Restorative Yoga. I practice yoga, meditation, and mindfulness daily.

Anti-Racism & Anti-Misogyny

I’m passionate about living in a way that does no harm to living beings, and does no harm to the environment. I actively work on reducing my use of plastics and household energy. I try to always choose local, organic foods that were grown in a sustainable manner.

I'm currently working on strengthening my own connection to the earth by starting my very first vegetable garden!
