About Me


Getting steady on my feet as a newbie expat


My friends would say that I was very laid back and that I had a good head on my shoulders. Also that when given the slightest drop of booze I become down right funny.


I've spent the last 18 months living as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Albania. I spend my days teaching high school students in a small mountain town and looking for adventure wherever it might be hiding. I've traveled back and forth across Albania and I've come to find some kind of adventure in every place I've been.
