About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My mission is to create and explore connections with people of all walks of life.

ABOUT ME

When I look to the future, it's difficult to picture when and where I'll be settling down.

Everywhere I've lived has been for some reason or another temporary. It makes for exciting transitions and leaves the possibility for travel all the more within grasp.

I hope that by traveling I'll find places and people that I can call my temporary home :)

PHILOSOPHY

The stories of our lives are not oft written by staying put.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Teaching traveling, I've found myself thrown into a world I barely recognized. The faces, customs, lifestyles, were all different; but at the center of it all, I realized how familiar and comforting it was. We may have different ways of thinking and dissimilar means of expressing our thoughts, but we're all driven by the same wants and needs toward a shared goal.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help teach English and about American food! I've got a nearly limitless list of recipes on my food blog.
