Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I've moved many times . As much as I love to travel - I don't like to be "Just passing through." I prefer to stay awhile, and get to know the place and the people. From studying in London, volunteering in Guatemala, Thailand, Peru, Morocco and Costa Rica - starting an expat hosting group in Mexico - and most recently I've called Spain my launchpad since 2012, first based in Madrid and now Barcelona.
The most enriching experiences of my life have been because of the people I've met. Through learning of how they see the world, and what values are most important to them. I'm open-minded to all walks of life, because each person has their own way to be, and I could only be so lucky to get a window into what others know, experience and see.
I travel light, live simply, nonsmoker, pet friendly and all around curious person who equally loves to chat with friends and curl up quietly with a book. Nice to meet you!
