I am an anthropologist and poet based in Cincinnati, OH, and this is my personal blog. I am intensely curious about the intricacies of the lived human experience, and it is this curiosity that drives me to places near and far to see what people are up to. Sometimes I write about what I’ve seen and what I think about what I’ve seen. Everything on this site has emerged from my attempts to grapple the complexities of us, the rarest creature. I invite you to grapple with me.

My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together

-Desmond Tutu
