About

This is an archive of things found, things enjoyed and things shared. I launched double takes in 2007 and it’s been kickin’ ever since.

As for me, I’m an American expat currently living in Seoul, South Korea. Moreover, I’m a Chicago native and recent college graduate who favors the nomadic lifestyle over settling down.

According to my diploma, I’m a writer, geographer and political scientist…I prefer traveler. I’ve been told, however, that doesn’t count as a job title, so technically I’m a freelance writer by profession.

If there’s anything you should know about me it’s the following: I strongly believe that popcorn tastes best with m+ms. I collect maps, passport stamps and freckles. I think Flintstone vitamins, erasable pens and pez shooters are all wonderful inventions.

I’d love to hear from you! If you feel the urge to say hello or have a question about something (anything, really!) that’s fine, too. Send me an e-mailĀ and I’ll look forward to it!

Thanks for stopping by, seriously!
