Hello Stranger Blog

Hello, Stranger.

Welcome to the place where I overshare on the internet. I like to talk about languages I can’t speak, sea kayaks, and other pretty things.

Here, you can read about hiking in the Red River Gorge, my favorite trails in Michigan, and sea kayaking in the Apostle Islands or Pictured Rocks. You can also read my entire essay collection from my time in Peace Corps Armenia, all 25 of them, including our evacuation due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

The truth is that I honestly really like spilling my thoughts and feelings all over the internet. I’ve found that the more honest I am, the more people feel a little less alone, and strangers tend to become friends.

And I hope for you too, that you can have those moments when the world and the people in it all become a little less strange.


Wishing you all the best,
