I love to learn, eat, sleep, stargaze, explore, travel and share. Not too general, right?
Why I Share Meals
The warmth that comes from remembering how throughout our existence on this planet, sharing a meal is truly where we find connection, love, and appreciation for one another!
Places I’ve Traveled
I was lucky enough to have parents that loved to travel, every summer and fall as a child we took a road trip somewhere in the U.S., to camp, hike and experience anything along the way. When I was 16 we went to Europe for a couple weeks which was, well, ineffable. For one year in 2009 I studied at a university in Hong Kong and while living there had the opportunity to visit Vietnam, Cambodia, China (Beijing, Guangzhou), and Taiwan.
What I Read, Watch, and Listen To
The Bad Plus, Sonny Rollins, Sigur Ros, Muddy Waters, Nicki Minaj, Beirut, any films by Tsai Ming-Liang or Jim Jarmusch. Science Fiction and Cyber Punk! William Gibson's Neuromancer is one of my all time favorites. Also, A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn and Towards a Philosophy of Photography by Vilem Flusser. TV shows: Louie, X-Files, Madmen, Parks and Recreation..
A Memory of a Home-Cooked Meal
While in Hong Kong I was invited to a friends home where her grandmother made us rice with tofu and chinese vegetables ( I still try to imitate this today but it doesn't compare despite seeming rather simple to make! ), fish stomach soup ( good for the skin! ), and my favorite, dong lai cha (hong kong style iced milk tea).
Who I’d Like to Have a Meal With
Hmm, off the top of my head, with Jacques Cousteau aboard the RV Calypso. Or no, with Sojourner Truth, or with Chief Seattle!
