When I was little, I wanted to live in France and wander the country side like the Impressionists. After completing my B.F.A. in Graphic & Interactive Design, from Tyler School of Art in 2009 (during the recession), I moved to France. I studied the language for many years, and was offered a contract to teach English in a High School. I liked it there, so I stayed for two more years. I went from speaking broken French, to mastering the language.
I experienced many different cultures I knew nothing about before. I realized how little I actually knew about anything, and that you could spend an entire day of your life in a new place, meeting someone new, learning a new skill or seeing something completely out of the ordinary. I wanted to learn more languages, I wanted to travel more, I wanted to share my failures and joys with others and hear their stories too. I haven’t stopped since.
If you would like to share any thoughts, ask a question, or share a story. Please don’t hesitate. I’m always happy to start a conversation with a stranger.
