about me


I love coffee; I love coffee shops even more.

I feel too varied to sum me up in artfully contrived paragraphs. Yet, I feel there is so much and so little to say.

So, for now, I think that you should know my inspirations because then you can know me.  Here’s the almost short-list; God, family, friends, flea markets, people, Henry Miller, Picasso, architecture, style-bloggers, print magazines, William Faulkner, random conversations, Alexandre Dumas, independent music, Miles Davis, neighborhoods, thrifting, hostels, Toni Morrison,  beaches, books, Brooklyn,Thomas Newman, travel bookstores, L.A., love, natural light, Africa (all of it), acoustic guitars, airports and airplanes, Picasso (yes I’ve listed him twice), graffiti, Gustav Klimt, Maxwell, caffeine, Bon Iver, Modigliani, Annie:the movie, yard sales, Van Gogh, ideas, and paper…yes paper in all its tangible forms.
