I’m from New York, and after graduating from a university in the middle of cow country, I moved to Sweden, then to Germany, and then to England, first to Cambridge and now in London, where it hasn’t stopped raining since I arrived.

More recently I have joined the real world as a functional adult, working as a writer for a London consultancy. I live in a little apartment and am constantly reminded that for the same money, I could be living in luxury. In, you know, north England or Arkansas or something.

RVBM was born from an obscenely hot birthday evening in early August, spent drinking beer and eating cake straight from the pan with one of my best friends.

My dream job is to spend all day in cashmere pajamas with a perpetually full cappuccino and a floor-to-ceiling window writing updates about my life. I’ll let you know if that ever happens.
