  • Description

    I currently live in Barcelona and complete freelance work in the humanities. I studied cultural anthropology and french as an undergraduate in Los Angeles and critical media studies and spanish as a master's student in Barcelona. I worked for two years in Andalucía as an english language teacher in between my studies and also spent time traveling and workawaying at various farms and language camps. Gardening and cooking are two of my passions--I love everything about food! Academically my focus has been centered around all aspects of food, from sustainability to the connections between food and identity/culture to the way in which gastronationalisms can foster ingroup/outgroup discrimination. I am an admirer of art and music and I love painting and photography. I have experience volunteering on farms and I am eager to learn about and deeply understand the processes of planting and harvesting different crops. Farming/gardening is something that I find very meditative and healing and I am always blessed to have the opportunity to engage with the soil and earth in a conscious way. I have a gluten allergy (I am not celiac) which I can easily accommodate after 8 years. This basically means that I cannot eat pasta/bread but I can easily buy myself gluten free substitutes or eat other basic carbs like potatoes, rice, etc. I love all fruits/vegetables and will eat meats/fish. I would love to get back into nature for a bit after this hectic year and feed my soul with some new wisdom and experiences.
