Hi! I’m Ann Boyles, a Los Angeles-based writer with a background in tech.
I was raised on a sailboat in Southeast Alaska, a childhood which led to lots and lots of book-reading (winters in Alaska are long and dark), a high tolerance for small living spaces, and a love of the sea. I am a dual US/Dutch citizen and speak Dutch fluently.
In no particular order, here are some things that I love (if you love any of the things listed below, please get in touch so we can squee happily about them together!):
- Tall ships
- Sea shanties
- The music of Stan Rogers
- Old books
- Old folk ballads / broadsides
- Powell-Pressburger films
- Historical menswear
