About Andy...

To me, Postcrossing should be what the sender wants to send, not a list of wishes from the recipient. Each postcard is a gift, of object, expense, and time. So please send any kind of postcard, whatever you wish to share with me as that gift.

I know some people want suggestions so:

If you have a card that you look at and think that there's nobody you could ever send it to, send that one to me.

I enjoy funny, strange, ugly, odd cards very much. I'm OK with nudes and erotica (especially men) and whatever else you might be nervous about sending.

I also like map cards, close-up/macro shots, and vintage movie/Hollywood photos.

For potential swappers: I am only interested in swapping to receive strange, ugly, or odd postcards.


I am an avid knitter (find me on Ravelry with the same username). I also love to read, collect and use both pencils and fountain pens, cook, solve word puzzles, walk, travel… lots of hobbies. I enjoy music, especially classical and opera, but other types too. I love nature, especially birds, flowers, and mountains.

I have lived in (in chronological order): Ohio, West Virginia (many different towns), Virginia (central), Texas (Houston), California (Los Angeles), Virginia (DC suburbs), Vermont (Burlington), and California (southern). I now live in Palm Springs, California, a desert resort city.

I live about 90 minutes from Disneyland. I like to go often, about once a month or so.

I have traveled to Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom (England and Scotland), Ireland, Austria, France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Slovakia, Hungary, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Where to go next? I definitely want to explore more of Asia.

I hiked the Tour du Mont Blanc (France-Italy-Switzerland) in 2006. I bicycled from Vienna, Austria to Budapest, Hungary in 2013. Those have been my two "trip of a lifetime" experiences.
