rose in michigan

Hi, I’m Rose. I’m from Texas.

I live in New York City. I take photos. I write. I collect personal thoughts here.
This place is for my notes on photography, poetry, prose, food, travel, technology, love, heartbreak, discoveries, movement, and other rose-like things. I focus here on exploring the uncertainty of growing up while at the same time trying to live with bravery and fire.

Most of all, I believe in adventure, observation, and all expression via technology, movement, words, and art.

When I first starting writing complete sentences in English, my mother gifted me a cardboard box filled with pink plastic-covered diaries to write in. A year later, she asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I answered, “an Arthur.”

Please note that I did not mean the cartoon anthropomorphic aardvark, I was just not very good at pronouncing English words correctly. Ever since that day, I’ve kept a journal and I write almost every day. When I was a teenager I designed and coded websites using Notepad and I’ve kept some form of blog since 1999.

  • I work at TED. My professional qualifications live on LinkedIn.
  • I love to travel. I made a map of everywhere I’ve been!
  • I occasionally post photography on rosekuo.org | Flickr | Tumblr | Instagram.
  • I not-so-secretly make note of hilarious or touching things on Twitter.
  • I teach Argentine tango.
  • I write about food and other indulgences on Yelp.
  • I collect wildly sprawling and eclectic music playlists on Spotify.
  • If you’d like to trade thoughts on life, love, food, or anthropomorphic animals, please email me. Or subscribe to my tiny letters and we can be penpals.

I would love to hear from you.
