About Me


To see as much as possible of Latin America before I die / Conocer lo mas que puedo de America Latina antes de morir


I recently completed my M.A. in Latin American Studies at American University. Right now I'm living in Montevideo, and loving every minute of it.

In the future I'm hoping to do sustainable development or human rights work in Latin America, preferably in the Andean region.


Recientemente termine una maestría en Estudios Latinoamericanos en American University. Por el momento trabajo para una ONG en Montevideo, Uruguay y estoy disfrutando cada minuto de mi vida aqui.

Eventualmente quiero dedicarme al desarrollo sostenible o algo que tiene que ver con los derechos humanos en America Latina, preferiblemente en la region andina.
