Hello! I am a foreign language enthusiast, an editor, a taekwondo athlete, a dedicated almond consumer, and an aspiring diplomat. I love reading on windowsills, looking at tiny houses, running, discussing Asia Pacific security, and shopping for notebooks, though not necessarily in that order.

Check out the “Book Summaries” page for a look at my thoughts on some of the books I read this summer or the “Miscellaneous” page for less-serious thoughts on a wide spectrum of topics. Thanks!
