I am a furniture designer and maker. I've been living in this space for 15 years. An experienced traveler for sure, my favorite modes of travel are Barging and Hitchhiking, in that order. I speak a few languages -- well enough to make people laugh and find my way. I enjoy meeting people on my best days, and in all my years, I can only think of one person I really didn't like. Now I'm over it.
