Hi I’m Lynn….originally from Boston, and living in NYC since 2001. ‘Quirky’ is my middle name! I enjoy a range of activities, and especially like trying out new things. Past and current hobbies have included salsa dancing, gardening, hiking, photography, modern art, high fashion and billiards. On my current to-do list is to try out a martial art, learn how to play the bouzouki and attend a girls roller derby event (as a spectator!) I greatly enjoy foreign travel, language and film. I have slowly but steadily been teaching myself Japanese by reading various instruction manuals, learning hiragana and katakana (with these flash cards which are amazingly helpful! http://www.tuttlepublishing.com/language-books/japanese/flash-cards/japanese-kana-cards-kit-book-and-kit) and by watching Japanese film. Some of my favorite Japanese movies are Tokyo Story, Ikiru, The Taste of Tea, When a Woman Ascends the Stairs, Zatoichi the Blind Swordsman, Spirited Away (animation by Miyazaki) and Kikujiro. In the video you may have noticed artwork featuring Japanese woodblock technique. That was done by my friend, Beatriz Inglessis, website: beatrizinglessis.net/THE-MAKING-OF

Lynn started her own little Supper Club, details found here:
