Joined 10 years ago from Manhattan




My name is Helena, and I am interested in music, travel (my profile picture was taken in Krakow), business and economics, dogs, religion/spirituality, video games, current events, and lots of other stuff.

I love comments, especially thoughtful responses to my writing, so bring it on!

I work in the music industry and recently graduated from college with a major in Economics and a minor in Religious Studies. I live in New York City.
