Bonjour, ni hao, good to meet you!  I'm Alyse, a scientist by profession, a freelance photographer, amateur guitarist, and aspiring Tomb Raider athlete.

Welcome to Lumière & Lens, my little space on the Internet.  You'll find posts on lifestyle, creative endeavors, fitness, and photography.  In general, I write about things I like, which include: drip coffee, pastries, meditation through exercising, creating, etc.  I've lived in cities my entire life, am a fairly kinetic person, and like to always be learning or doing something.

Grab a cuppa and stay awhile!  I hope you enjoy engaging in this space as much as I do creating it.
