i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
sven went to ottawa for the international animation festival. i went with him just to explore. it turns out ottawa is lovely! i brought my little folding brompton bike and it was such a good decision! ottawa has an incredible biking trail system and most of it was flat. i indulged several times in the canadian delicacy known as poutine. and when i got back, i began to learn french. :)
