I Live In
I'd Like To Be Living In
It's a tug of war between where I am now and moving back to New York City.

I also think I'd fit in well in the Pacific NW--maybe Seattle or Portland...
My Dream Job
Travel writer/photographer, Author

Working for "This American Life," "re: sound," "Sound Opinions," or "All Songs Considered" on Chicago Public Radio
If Money Were No Object, I Would
Photograph. Write. Host a radio show. Become a multi-instrumentalist. Learn how to sing. Be in a band.
See the entire world, but still with the ideals of a backpacker. Live for awhile in the places I ended up liking most. Help whoever I could while there, humans and animals alike.
More specifically:
*road trip around the entire U.S., spending a significant amount of time in each state
*backpack throughout South America
*go on an African safari
*swim with turtles in the Galapagos
*see the whales in Patagonia
*go on an ancestral search through Russia, Romania, Hungary and Poland
*Costa Rican rainforest--mostly to observe the wildlife/insects and also to go zip-lining
Greatest Risk Taken To Date
Proudest Moment/Achievement
So far...

Getting photos published in JPG Magazine twice in four months.
Being asked to display my photos in a group show at a legit gallery
Most Interesting Travel Experience
A three-week-long cross-country roadtrip with my best friend, where we intended on camping, but, for unforeseen circumstances, ended up spending most nights sleeping in my minivan. So many hilarious encounters and unplanned adventures along the way. I'd do this trip again (through the other states) in a heartbeat.

-hiking up Mt. Masada at 3:45 in the morning, in order to get to the top for the sunrise
-floating in the Dead Sea (i couldn't wrap my mind around that until i actually did it)

-eating a lot of "chicken pie," which we later found out was "pigeon pie." oh, accents.
-having a robed man chase me down the street shrieking and yelling at me about being American and then smacking me.
Next Place I'll Visit
Tanzania (April 6-May 4)

What is mySomeday.com Close
mySomeday is designed to help you achieve those goals and dreams you’ve always said you’d get to ‘Someday’. It was born from a universal truth; everyone has ‘somedays’ they want to realize. It was designed to address a universal reality; life, laziness or lack of know-how makes achievement elusive. ‘Plans’ are meant to address this gap between truth and reality. Whether you build your own original Plan or copy and customize an existing Expert or Community Plan, this detailed roadmap is meant to get you from start to finish. With a Plan, you can track your progress, set reminders and deadlines, get feedback from the community and much more. In addition to Plans, we hope that all of the elements of the site and the social connections that spring up will take people from idea, to plan, to partnership, and, ultimately, to achievement.
