About Me


Experience & Share


After living and working in Asia for 8 years (teacher, student, then professional) I made the move to North America a few years ago to experience a new continent.

I'm an easy going person who likes to laugh a lot and I enjoy having new experiences and meeting new people. Life is here to be lived and my perspectives are constantly evolving, mostly thanks to the people I meet.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I used to have a pre-CS story here but I can honestly say that now the most amazing things I've done and seen are related to CS. Arriving in Yemen not knowing a soul and 12 hours later be sitting around a bonfire at a party at the U.S. embassy. Waking up with the roosters in a small village on the outskirts of Addis Ababa. Climbing through a barb wire fence to sneak into the ruins in Hezbollah controlled Baalbek. Sharing stories over vodka in Iraq, Thanks to CS I've had experiences I never would otherwise have had.
